    Advantages of being older
    By Shannon

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Well, I'm 24, and although I like being young for many reasons, I do find that older teachers have some advantages. For example:

    1. Parents assume that older teachers are wiser and more experienced, and don't tend to attack them as much.
    2. When they do have parents complain, the older teachers can say things to them that younger teachers can't, since they are older and often have grown kids of their own.
    3. Those who have been around awhile can make comments at staff meetings or to the principal that new teachers wouldn't dare make.
