Veteran Teachers

     Every public school and every public school district has teachers who are well know by the staff and the parents because of their longevity.  These gems of the school have typically been teaching for over 30 years and sometimes for over 40 years.  They love what they do and everyone looks to them for advice and ideas.

     People who don't teach are appreciative of teachers because they feel that it is hard to be around children or teenagers all day and everyday.  But people who do teach actually like to be around children and teenagers.  People who teach a long time are very good at what they do and they enjoy what they are doing.

     It is fun when every child in a family has the same teacher over the years.  Sometimes, if you teach long enough, you might teach the children of former students.  My school system has a teacher who has been teaching for over 40 years.  He is a legend to the staff and the students in his class are proud to have him as their teacher.

     Veteran teachers are a part of what's so great about public education.
