I just retired after teaching 40 years. My first two years were in Peace Corps. I can't say it was positive or negative. Many districts only give you one years experience for Peace Corps, but it does change you and your outlook so it depends on whether you just mean monetarily. Monetarily you never catch up by the way.
When I graduated jobs were tough and it gave me a chance to teach right away. That part is true now as well, unfortunately.
