It's official, I'm (also) retired

wildflowerz gave me the incentive to join the club make the official announcement also!

it's a bit anti climatic...since I haven't been to school since the middle of January.

I have taken the last two weeks off from school using some of my surplus sick days. Since my state allows multiples of 20 sick days to count as one month of service, I had 1.5 years of sick days added up and 14 extra days. Those extra days go in the "use them or lose em" category. So I used 8 of them and still left 6 days on the table. I just considered them insurance days in case of any miscalculations by the fine folks at HR.

Today is actually bigger event for the supply/sub teacher who the principal hired to take my place at the beginning of the semester; and as of today (and my official retirement), is finally a full time contract teacher with benefits!

SO i am officially retired...

Okey Dokey then!

I hope you are resting from the school year and catching up on sleep. Then I hope you have some fun plans to celebrate this next chapter of your life. Welcome to the retirement board.

Although you haven't been to school, it sounds like you've done enough thinking about - your replacement, use of sick days, etc. That counts!!

Wishing you a wonderful time allowing your retirement to unfold.

indeed the young teacher who replaced me, a fellow alumni from my alma mater (GT) , was happy to get a job and I was just as happy to leave.

I just got my wife a pug puppy last week for her B'day and this little cutie, poop/pee and chewing machine is keeping me busy and smiling as she (wife -not the pup) still works during the day as a nurse.
cheers

And how wonderful that your state lets you apply sick time like that. I had quite a few sick days, and we got a few thousand dollars in pay for the ones that I had up to the limit in our contract. We had to let them know of our impending retirement before a certain date in order to maximize the benefit, which I did. Our district is cracking down on the use of sick days, so I left them behind. I wish we had a sick bank, something I argued for when I was on the Negotiations Team, but we couldn't get the district to agree to one.

I hope you have a long, happy and healthy retirement. In my humble opinion, it is a terrific place to be in your life. You earned it!
