I was traveling to Georgia when I got a feeling that things were about to get worse with the virus. I decided to go to where my mom and sister live instead. On the way there I get a call from my mom that her senior living complex is on lock down. My sister has an autoimmune disease, so she has no business being out in public. I am now sitting in my RV in a campground so that I can get supplies for them without getting too close to either one. I couldn’t do this if I were still working. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Sounds like you traveled to the right place for now to help out your sister. I am sure she is very appreciative. Hopefully you will make it to Georgia in a month or two.

Retirement definitely affords us the time to take care of the important things that would have been more difficult to do if we were teaching.

I am glad I am retired so I do not have to deal with virtual teaching. I enjoyed being in the classroom and am okay using technology, but developing lessons that rely on technology for delivery is not something I would want to do. i did not hear that my state cancelled testing or SGOs or the documentation log, so the pressure and stress from that would be there, too. Timing is everything!

Everything is cancelled here in Massachusetts - and no one is required to do online teaching. In fact, they do not want the teachers to do it.

we have a 2 week break so they just took a week earlier off (3 weeks total). We will see what happens after that, but glad to be retired as well!
