Wishing everyone a good year….going on my 17th year and I would like to say it gets easier but I feel like a new teacher every-time. Stay consistent, know yourself, and remember you matter. So take that break/ day off when needed!

It’ll be my 25th year in education. Hopefully, five to seven more. May all our boats return to a safe harbor at the end of 2022.

I am starting year 41. Four years to go (started at 21). Best wishes for everyone! This will be, at least, an interesting year. I agree so much with California Middle School 1 (btw, I started in CA): so much in education has changed … and it never seems to get easier. The pendulum swings in multiple dimensions.

This will be my 30th year. So much has changed…the curriculum, the basic family structure, the push to politically indoctrinate instead of teaching independent critical thinking… One thing that has not changed is that the people who make the majority of decisions are the people who have not been in a classroom teaching for 10 to 20 years. Thankfully students are you still wanting to learn and there’s still a lot of happiness that I get out of teaching. Have a great year everyone!

WHS 1 congrats for staying in this profession for that amount of time. I started at 22, and just keep going. You cannot retire until 45 years of teaching or age 65? I can retiree from the profession at 35 years but I’ll only be 57 … but depending where I am financially, ( my son will be in college) I may stay longer, but I think I’ll do something else. I admire your dedication. 👏👏😀

That’s one thing I really don’t like about teaching. Our retirement is very aged discriminatory. Someone can work less than years than I but we save more and retirement if that person happens to be older when he or she retires. Also even though I worked enough before teaching to earn Social Security, I’m more or less disqualified from it or from survivors benefits because I’m a teacher. Where is the equity in that?

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
