The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having to go to faculty meetings. . . No that's kind of stupid.

The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having to grade papers after supper and then call parents.

No, you'd know in a heartbeat THAT was spoken by a teacher who NEEDED to retire.

Okay, the hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having the summers off. Yes, I know I have everything off, but hey . . .

The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having a bunch of kids to fool on April Fool's Day!!

Happy 4/l.

    Enjoyed reading this since retirement is strongly on my mind. I'll probably be there within the next 2 to 7 months. Currently waiting on some other information before I know exactly when.

I have heard most of what you said from my oldest daughter. She is planning her retirement within the next four years. Yet, knowing her she will not be satisfied with a nonchallenging life-style. Enjoy retirement!

    I long to retire. But I need to put a new roof on the house and I'm terrified of living on less money when I barely get by month to month. And the administration is running this place like a Walmart and not like a university. I feel as if I am not a teacher but a customer service specialist!

And that is NOT an April Fool's joke!

    I LOVE being retired from teaching - after some years the novelty of not having to be where someone else dictates, doing what someone else decides, with a group organised by someone else, i.e. a TIMETABLE is still wonderful. Probably why I now have trouble getting organised sometimes!!

    This is so funny, especially if you spent anytime teaching at all. Those late nights with papers are just not understood by the general public. I haven't taught in years except in my dreams and then it is always a nightmare and I didn't really want to go there.

Best thing about retirement: being a kid again with no periods and lots of time to play and explore.

    The hardest thing about retiring from librarianship has been having to be more intentional in planning my days.

    Now that's not the one I would have expected! Where I work, humor is against the rules (LOL!) but I expect to see some pranks ... this is the first April Fools I have been in this facility ... emoticon

    Although I'm not a retired teacher, I am retired and I know we always had fun on April Fool's Day where I did work. The hardest part of being retired is not seeing my extended family everyday.....they were the best. Have a great day and let's stay healthy together.
