Young teachers. Pay yourself before you pay bills. Invest $50, $75, $100 a check into your retirement account. Increase that amount each year you teach. From age 25 to age 55 watch it grow. Figure out your buckets of money for retirement. 401k, SocSec, Pension. You deserve it!

@NACS_Supt Unfortunately, I'm sure most teachers aren't paid enough to be able to afford the luxury of investing.
