I am in my 11 th year of teaching (math). I finished my degree and student teaching at 45. I have never regretted for one minute the decision to become a teacher. I will admit that 25 + years of "real world" experience causes me to have a different perspective than most in education. And many in education find my different perspective uhhh annoying.
