Today is my first day as a newly retired teacher! It has been wonderful. Not sure when the reality will really hit, but I know Sundays will never be the same again....just much better!

December is a great month to retire. You'll be so busy through the holidays, there's no need for adjustment. In January when all return to the trenches, you'll be happy you don't have to. No need to be depressed on New Years Day this year. Enjoy those late football games and just smile...

It allows so much freedom!!! I have to admit my teacher voice is still with me. Bratty kid started to open an alarmed door here at the airport and I firmly said NO! Enjoy retirement.

Retirement is awesome. Sunday nights are still surreal to me. I do sub, but have limited myself to 7 schools in my large district and only take jobs if and when I want. Right now, with the holidays, I am not taking as many jobs. I only have 2 half days set up before break. I may take others. I may not.

I love my new reality.

Welcome to the club.

Welcome to retirement, I agree that there is an adjustment period. My happiest moments are when I don't have to set the alarm clock.😘

So happy to hear you were able to join us! And what a perfect month to retire! You can bake cookies, enjoy the holidays, read by a cozy fire, or do whatever you want to do in a month that is always stressful in the classroom! Congrats! You will L-O-V-E it!

Welcome to what initially seems like an extended school break...without the stress of ever going back. It takes awhile to develop your new normal for every day activity. Retirement is awesome and I wish you the best!!

What a wonderful time to retire. You will be able to enjoy all of the holiday excitement with none of the back to school stress. Just think, you do not have that bag of school stuff waiting to be finished before your break runs out.😀😀

Congratulations on your retirement, and welcome to our board. I have found that making some lists helps me organize all my new free time. Here are the ones I use:
Things I Might Do
Things I Might Do But Want To Think About A While Longer
Things I Might Do If I Damn Well Please

These are just suggestions, of course.

Welcome to this board as an official Retired Teacher. Take things one day at a time and adjustments will need to be made along the way. There's no feeling like the newly retired feeling. We are here for you.
