Settling into Retirement

I retired June 2019. I subbed a lot last school year. I feel fully retired now because I am not subbing this year due to COVID.

I forget some things. My husband who is still working says my...

Good Advice

Try to let it go. If she started it you can end it. There is nothing worst than a competitive relationship. Read the Four Agreements. Don't take it personally.

These situations are difficult...

It is so hard to know why. When I got hired in my district I was an outsider for sure. My experience was very different from the other teacher I worked with. I tried so hard but I just couldn't...

I retired last June. I don't regret it. Now during the time of Coronavirus, teaching will be even more complicated.

The celebration is fun at school with your friends. I am sorry you are not...

Don't worry about your age! When I read your descriptive title, "I have a date," I thought it was for tonight. New Year's Eve.

Enjoy your final months. I retired last year. People knew and...

Here's a tip that is getting me through

I am using stickers for the lower grades for positive choices. I have been subbing here and there. I love the $$ and it has been good with pulling away from a full time job. I was concerned about...

Off my high from retiring

I have been going strong since I retired in June. Now I am feeling a little lonely and sad. I am glad that I retired but now I see some reality as I begin to plan my days. Hubby not retired. ...

Good Insight Here

I recently retired. June 2019. So far so good. I am subbing, reading, and exercising.

I had a pang of sadness the other day. What I realized was that my life has changed. For me, I thought...

What does your gut tell you?

I was in a similar situation a few years ago. Everyone marched to the beat of our team leader. Our team leader retired and I saw such a difference once she was gone with the people who were on the...

Better than I imagined!

I retired in early June. I was able to leave on a positive note and enjoyed every minute of the gatherings I participated in.

Now things have calmed down and I am so content. I haven't felt this...

So True

I have read all the post and I agree. I just retired a few weeks ago. I feel relieved. It is over. My principal was very hard to please. She never taught under the conditions that she creates. ...

It's Okay

I retired yesterday. 41 years. I feel like I am in my 40s.

I had it tough for the last 10 years and then I realized that I needed help. I spoke to a psychologist for a few meetings. That...

Insightful Understanding

I will be retiring in 20 some days. I think it is a good sign that I am feeling relieved. Retiring has been on my mind for 8 years and I have finally reached the point that I can do it.

I am...

Well said

I agree with everything said. I am retiring at the end of the year. It has been challenging the last 5 years. There is not enough time to do all the things that are required. There is such...

Great Question

As we prepare to go back after break I bet others are thinking about other options. An additional question to add...If you are retired is it an option instead of the traditional public school system?

ODD like student

I have a student who is very oppositional. I am trying to get her on track every day of every moment. Her behavior is very forceful and I know that she can out do anyone in the school with her...

Problems with students

I was going to write about my issues with students not listening, talking back, and not caring. But so many post are saying what I am seeing.

Could it be that the behavior is so bad that the...

I just realized this the other day

Everything being said is 100% true for me, also.

So when a child is defiant the rules do not apply to them. Catch them before they fall. Send them on a useless errand, have a different...

Proceed Carefully

These posts describe what I see with the situation my school is in. I don't think the school board or the upper admin have been approached. Teachers, paraprofessional have left. No one has the...

Fear of the leadership

The leadership in the school has changed over the years. In the past the door was closed and not much was done. Now advance 10 years later. Someone has taken charge, big time. It is the opposite...

This is difficult....

This type of problem is becoming more common. We are compassionate people and when a child is a big concern you most likely have a serious situation on hand.

Document everything about this child. ...

The comments are appreciated!

The replies are spot on. This is a universal thing. Teachers ask for many reasons. People don't understand how inappropriate they are until they are in these shoes.

Education is so much more...
