As a one time college professor, yes, TIAA-CREF did very well, but that was as much the power of compounding as anything else since the contributions were in the mid 70s.

Point being, though, that college professors and book authors are a very small percentage of the overall population of teachers. I.e., if one samples teachers as a class, one ends up with very different results than if one samples teachers who have made enough money to seek out an investment advisory firm.
