O!m!g!

I do not know how you are able to work and also help your hubby's mom (my dad has Alzheimer's...I can empathize!) and now your hubby. I am thinking about you and praying for you! They need you, and...

I agree with everyone else...

...I'd put all my notes in a folder and hand it to the admin and let them know I would not be doing this event next year...but I'd also include a wonderful note about how GOOD the other person (the...

I agree...

I love the quiet, dark morning time. It's always been "my" time, so the alarm was set for 4:45 and I'd be up and downstairs by 5 to get on the computer for half an hour to 45 minutes, and have my...

Past my bedtime...

We went to a volleyball game at our school that lasted until 9:30 (great game!) and didn't worry about staying all the way until the end of the game!

Used to be, when we were teaching, we would...

Congratulations!

I am so glad that you have made the decision to retire early enough in the year to plan to enjoy the rest of the year - the kids, your colleagues, the "lasts." It was all so poignant for me last...

..I'd go right into her office after I calmed down a little (but not all the way - I'd want some heat on!!) and tell her, as professionally as I was able but for sure showing my...

Aww...

Hoping you can find a way to get some things off your plate and recover a bit. Maybe take some personal time, even if it's only a nice hot bath in the evening with a good book to get your mind off...

I'm sorry...

...that you have to deal with that, especially publicly. It's hard enough having the low scores, for which there are many reasons, many of which are not under your control.

If I were you, I'd...

But for the first time since we retired in June, I might be able start understanding...

I sincerely hope...

...that your admin supports you in the concepts of "full" and "nothing I can do" because it will only take one exception and your phone will never stop ringing (not that it does now) :)

Another thought...

...I ended up purging as I went...files, handouts, tests, etc...as I used them, I threw them out. I did keep a couple of binders of one or two copies of every handout that I thought I might use if I...

I agree...

...enjoy your years of "lasts." It is really nice to savor the last first day of school, the last open house, the last dance chaperoning, etc. It makes the year go by fast and makes the bad days...

I don't think it's a waste of time...

...but it does depend on the type and number of problems that they are expected to copy. For example, for my word problems, they don't have to copy all the words once I've taught them how to...

I agree somewhat...

I agree that having my own time to do with what I want is wonderful! I am only just beginning to understand that I can actually do that (smile!)

But for some of us, retirement is difficult. I...

What works for you...

"I also retired in June and will admit to feeling a bit lost right now. "
I am feeling the same way. I'm not quite separated from the idea that I should be getting up and going to work in the...

Forty years out in the Florida weather? I don't know how you did it, much less for all those years!
I was a coach of three different sports for about thirty years, and I loved it...up until parents...

The quote that got me though...

I just retired after over forty years of teaching. It got harder and harder the last few years because of non-supportive admin, apathetic and disruptive kids, non-supportive parents, and too many...

I enthusiastically second the overhead projector. It's "old school" but incredibly effective. Try to find one with a roller attachment for the roller transparency - good luck, because they are rare,...
