Today is my last day of full-time teaching ever.

I start a new job in an unrelated field tomorrow.

Just one more day.

Wow! I need to hear what you are going to be doing. I only have 2 1/2 years to retirement, but don't know if I can do it. Good luck on your new career!

Hooray! I know there are many teachers who hesitate to leave the profession for various reasons, but it sounds like you made the right decision for you.


What is your new job?

Thanks all!

I watched my students graduate, took photos, turned in my keys, and walked with a smile to the car!

I am working as a resident relations manager for an upscale condominium. I've managed to cut my commute down to a whopping 5 minute drive from home, and I have a desk of my own! Perhaps best of all, I no longer have to work from home and I can deal with one to three people at a time versus 33 children. If I promote just one more level up, I'll make way more than I did as a teacher.

Thank you for all the good feels.

Nice! However, the bit about you "no longer having to work from home" is often the opposite of what many strive to be able to do. Many WANT to be able to work from home.

MASped, I think she meant she will no longer bring work home.

Yes, that sentence took me aback for a second, but then I realized she probably meant what Zia wrote here.

Congrats, bayteacher97! I hope you find a lot of fulfillment in your new job and work your way up quickly

Thanks all.

Each day I now have energy to do the things I neglected while teaching, like taking care of my health, running errands, etc. It's just amazing. I smiled the day I turned in my classroom key, and now I'm even happier.

Have a wonderful summer and I'll be thinking of (and thanking!) the reamining teachers in the profession. No one who's never been a teacher understands the mental and physical strength it requires.
