It took me about a year

To transition into retirement. I had a variety of emotions and went with the flow of those emotions. I acknowledged that it would be a transition and decided not to worry about it. It took...

I feel so bad for you!

I can only imagine how you feel. Your P and AP are not good leaders. My suggestion would to be cordial to the three people who had concerns, but did not come to you first. Talk to your partner...

You have been in my thoughts. I donít have much to add, but I like the idea of saying as little as possible. Let the P and your partner teacher blab. If they spring anything on you, maybe say...

The situation was poorly handled as is much in education today. Your anger is completely justified and the P probably is the one who created the situation.

My advice would be to NOT resign. Word...

I have thought about this

for several days before posting. My experience when students tell a story about a teacher or another student is that there was usually a grain of truth somewhere, but that the context is not relayed...

I found there was a transition period

and in a sense I was grieving the loss of my longtime profession (like grieving the loss of a loved one). Several books did help. The Joy of Not Working and How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free were...

I am so sorry that

this happened to you. You have gotten good advice. Here goes with my two cents. This teacher is not someone you can trust. She has shown who she is by not bringing up these topics with you...

The AP has shown his

true character in allowing this to happen. It was more important for him to please this person than to support his teacher and students. I would be very disappointed with this admin and not trust...

It sounds like you are a good teacher

and doing all the things a good teacher should be doing. Planning and organization are important, but their concerns didnít seem to be about actual teaching. Communication logs can suck up a great...

I desperately wanted time

And flexibility. I planned my retirement far in advance. I saved money every month in a 403b to help give me choices when I retired. I read books about retirement and sketched out what I might do...

Teaching has certainly changed. . .

Over the years. I am a retired (5 years) educator with 36 years in the profession. I stumbled on the vent section when it was mentioned on the retired teachers board.

You are a great teacher and...

If one of the other

Teachers changed to a different track, why couldnít their own children change to that track as well? Iím sure it would be inconvenient, but is there a valid reason why they could not change as well?

Transitioning to retirement

Is certainly an adjustment after an extremely busy career as an educator. Being single and building a new life has unique challenges and one has to actively forge a new life. The Joy of NOT Working...

You are a

good friend and supporting your friend is very admirable. I feel for your friend. She is hurting and you want to be there for her. Her family situation makes this an even more emotionally charged...

Sorry your principal

Is being a pain, but try not to take it personally. They are probably feeling pressured to get staffing completed and don't want any surprises at this time of the year. Still, it is rude to be so...

years and loved the children, my colleagues, and most parents. I hit a rough patch around age fifty when I had the worst principal ever. I knew I had to change how I did things and my attitude. If...

I am so sorry that you were treated

This way. It is really hard to interpret the behavior of your principal. My first thought was to not trust this guy. It is bizarre that he could actually use the excuse that you had not attended...
