Eventually, retirement will be the nirvana you are looking for. I definitely feel for you. I taught for 42 years, loved it for the most part, but at the end, with all the requirements that took hours at home as well as at school, I definitely didn't welcome the new school year as I once did. I loved having the summers off to do what I wanted and Sunday nights did not fill me with any stress. I feel like every day I have in retirement is a blessing because of that freedom.

I also feel you about the PD. While I once got excited, towards the end, all I saw it as was more stuff to worry about and more things to have to do. It all started from Day One with those meetings. And we used to have two days for classroom prep, now one of them is filled with PD.

Enjoy your year with your class. Once you are in the swing, it will all be okay. Good luck to you and to all the teachers returning. They are lucky to have you out there working with our kids.
