I moved to Savannah with my sister about six months ago. After enjoying a delightful winter, I am now feeling the effects of a hot, humid Savannah summer! As it turns out, the mosquitoes love me!
I was a schoolteacher for thirty years and retired about a decade ago. I taught in Freehold, NJ, Escambia Schools in Pensacola, Santa Rosa Schools in Gulf Breeze, and finally Scottsdale, AZ. By the end of my career, I had taught just about every grade from K-8! In the last half of my career, I became a Gifted and Talented Specialist. Most of my years were spent teaching middle-schoolers, where I earned my wings to enter Heaven's Gate sometime in the future! I moved to Austin, TX, after I retired, and worked as a part-time consultant in the Advanced Academics Department where I "graduated" to teaching teachers!
I couldn't wait to quit working, but have found there are aspects of education that I miss. Mostly the belief that I was contributing to society in a positive way. What I did for so many years created a sense of importance in me that I don't feel as a retiree....
I am so proud to be an alumnus of Mt. Lebanon Schools. I find I can easily pass almost all of the Facebook Quizzes, which they say guarantees me a spot in the top 2% of Americans!!! Who knew my education would serve me so well?!
