Our long-time secretary retired in December and the staff is having an after-school dinner for her at a local restaurant. I was invited and went in to put my money in the envelope in the Office. It was great to see the secretaries still there and a couple of teachers who passed by. it was even great to see the students in the teacher's third grade class, and I felt a momentary pang, missing it. That lasted all of a few minutes until I remembered everything that went with being the teacher of that class in terms of work. No thank you

Thank goodness, otherwise how would we have survived? But then you think about all the meetings, paperwork, unhappy parents and discipline issues....... Then we are very relieved we are retired.

You hit the nail on the head...That's exactly what I was thinking. Retirement has been a wonderful blessing.

That's what's wonderful about retirement... go in with a smile and leave with a smile!! It's great to go back to see our old colleagues but nice to not have to deal with all of the work associated with teaching!!
