I got my first teaching assignment, 6th grade, when I was 20 years old. One of those sixth graders came back to visit me today. I hadn't really thought about it, but he told me he was graduating this year. I couldn't believe it when I realized that my first group of students I ever taught are going out into the world, especially considering, I myself haven't even hit age 30 yet. Made me wonder where other teachers stand. How old is your first group of kiddos?
