Well Kelly,   

You won't know until you try.  I did that once, worked for me.  Just don't advertise it.  If it works for you keep it your secret.  Nobody needs to know.   Don't even tell me.   Most student/teacher sellers are independent software resellers, not Adobe.   I sold software for lots of resellers in my past.  It's really up to the sales rep who sees or not sees it and most do not.  If it doesn't work with one, try another.   It's like a crap-shoot.  

Elements 2018 is selling for less than $100, bundled with premiere for $99, and it's got all the bugs patched for whatever we complained about once or twice.   Half way in their sales campaign watch for email with lower bundle pricing, around $70 toward the end of the season.   Student/teacher pricing is about the same as 2018 today.   A full Photoshop is by subscription with the CC after the title, "Creative Cloud".   Like you, I own mine.  

So, if I teach my employees, do I get a student/teacher discount?   Probably not.  But I could try.  I may be older but not stupid.   But, I'm not hard pressed for cheap software.   It'd be like an old-time habit.   We're not the software police, so it's your call, Kelly.
