Hi everyone. Friday was my last day with students. Here in Australia the school year finishes just before Christmas. I have four more staff days left. Well, three really as Thursday is Mass in the morning (I'm at a Catholic school) and then our staff lunch.

A while back I read where someone was going to leave on their last day with just their handbag and a smile on their face. I've been working on getting rid of stuff all year and I think that will be me on Thursday.

I know I will miss my colleagues, many of the students but not what the job has become.

This will be a very special Christmas.

I believe that was me who said that...and I did. I thought I would cry a little, but I didn't. I am now subbing some, mostly in my old building. I love it because all I have to do it teach. I am signed up for 2 1/2 days next week and have a 1-3 week set up for February. After that I am planning on taking a break from subbing and heading to Florida for some sun and warmth to get me through until the weather here warms up.
Enjoy your retirement and that wonderful feeling that you will have when everyone else goes back and you can just sit back and relax.

Congratulations to you, and welcome to our group of very happy retirees! You were smart to get rid of stuff throughout the year. That's exactly what I did my last year. Walking out the door that last day was such a joyful, freeing feeling! And the best news? That feeling lasts. I'm in my 3rd year of retirement, and I still wake up every morning with a huge smile on my face.

I find it interesting and a little sad that teachers all the world do not like what the job has become. i guess retired is the happiest, most fulfilled, and best kind of teacher to be right now. Welcome to the happy place.

Interestingly it sounds as if you are having some of the same concerns in Australia as we have in the U.S. Welcome, almost, to the wonderful world of retirement, and to the happiest board on PT!

I purged a year that I decided to retire. In hind sight I should've purged 2-3 years before I retired. Yes I said that. I had so much stuff it was ridiculous. I spent 2 weeks after school was out packing and getting rid of stuff but once I left the class room I only had my purse.
You are going to love this board!

I literally danced on my last day with an classroom dance party. I also literally danced out the door.
