I frequently read Scott Burns column in the Dallas Morning News, and initially came here to explore FIRE-Calc, and found that I also enjoy the forums. Thanks to all of you for some excellent information. At this time I don't have a question I wished to post, but simply wanted to introduce myself.
I plan to leave the Fortune 25 company where I work some time within the next year, then I plan to teach at the high school or community college level for a few years. I taught high school for five years when I left college in 1974, and I'll need to re-activate my teaching certificate by taking an exam.
My fiancee plans to continue working for a couple of years. She has one 18 year old from a former marriage, and I have three (ages 25, 22, 20) from a former marriage. We plan to marry some time this fall, and are looking forward to our future as empty nesters (the 18 year old begins college in the fall).
Life is good, and will be even better when I RE in a few months.
