I am a 30 year old teacher of 5 years, and would like to begin investing (for retirement...I guess), I have read books about the Foolish four and am interested ... but unsure. I also would like input on whether mutual funds, a 403(b), Roth IRA or other investment might be more Foolish.... HELP:)

Being a teacher, the article in the link below may provide you with some enlightening learning material. I won't need to say much about the FF after you read this article.

I also would like input on whether mutual funds, a 403(b), Roth IRA or other investment might be more Foolish...

My first question is have you read the 13 steps to Foolish investing? This is what most Fools start out at. You'll find atricles that discuss the Foolish take on mutual funds.The first link is to the Fool's School, where you'll see 2 columns: in the left one will be the Investing Basics and Mutual Funds, in the right you'll find the 13 steps, see:

The next link is to the Fool's Retirement Area, where you can follow the links to research 401k/403b facts, and all about IRA's, both in the left column.

After reading and getting more learned about these issues, come on back when you have more specific questions about these broad subject matters.
