Do the best you can...

I could have written your post. My district has many new administrators and many new initiatives. By my last summer before school started, I was so overwhelmed that I did not want to go back. I felt...

I hear you...

The last couple of years since I retired, I donated quite a few school supplies I had to different school supply drives in my area. I think I am finally done with that, although do have a lot of...

I only know of one...

I have a Facebook friend I spent summers with. She lives in AZ, retired from teaching and went back to do ESL, I think. I know she is excited about working again. Not sure if she retired from another...

Difficult to answer but...

When my principal passed away, the district hired a much younger woman. I noticed right away that she gravitated towards, and valued the opinion of, staff members closer to her age. She also...

Your post makes me happy!

I am starting my second year of retirement. I think you sum it up very well when you say that you are busy with other things. As teachers, we are so busy being with our classes and all the related...

Heading out on vacation tomorrow...

We are going to see Hamilton tomorrow. We are traveling to Philly to see it because I was able to get into a ticket lottery and buy them for a performance there. Broadway is even more expensive and...

Sounds like a plan...

I'm sorry that the year is off to a rocky start. I hope you are feeling better. Sometimes, I think administration is put on earth just to make the lives of teachers miserable. My last year of...

Yay you!

I am so glad that you were able to rise above the tension and get your own work done. What goes around, comes around. I'm sure if your teammate was a nicer person, you would have helped her, but it...

Definitely over the top...

I feel very sorry for the students who are capable of walking quietly in the hallways without such a system. I would rather see an administrator reward a good class maybe with extra recess or...

See a dermatologist...

If everything checks out with your primary doc, I would see a dermatologist. I have a friend who goes to one successfully for her hair loss issues.

Absolutely not...

I have been single all my life. While I would have welcomed a significant other and/or children at an earlier point in my life, it wasn't in the cards. I value my personal time and the fact that I...

Chicken recipe

I made this recipe last week, and it was tasty and easy. I like dark meat, so I substituted chicken drumsticks. I also used a can of beans in a chili sauce rather than the black beans because I had...

Develop a support system...

I would reach out to other colleagues for support and friendship. They may have techniques that worked for them in this school and with this population. Read the IEPS for your classified students and...

It is so nice to have time to enjoy your bounty. Having time for things like this is definitely a perk of retirement.

You have whole year to savor the “lasts”. If things get tough, or your class gives you trouble, it’s the last. I put my retirement letter in October two years ago. I so enjoyed the long goodbye. Good...

She saw you were doing a job, and should have waited with the rest of her story, especially since it was time for class. It was nice of you to apologize, but in my opinion, she was immature and out...

I got my successor dogs within a month or so of my loss. I always felt for me that the legacy of the dog I lost was to rescue another one in need. I found my last two on the internet. Before I found...

Today I met my former school secretary and a special education teacher both retired for a walk around the paths and trails at our local wildlife center park. I had not been to the park in years, and...
