Re: Advice on Early Retirement needed

Ol_Rancher, you have brought back many memories.

I was a male Ontario elementary teacher from 1964 to 1997.

We probably have the best run pension plan in North America so pensions are not a problem for us.

But the politics are/were.

We have had our fill of goofy re-invent the wheel educrats!

My experience as a young buck was, I took on all the coaching jobs and then some.

And then the men stopped coming into the profession, and I continued coaching in the 80's and 90's.

Hell, I was the cross-country coach in my retirement year and ran with the kids every day.

A big problem I think is family structure and parental support. In 1964, every kid I had was from a two parent unit. By 1997, more than half the parents had split, and the kids were running the show. Dress down a kid, and the principal was afraid of the parents or administration.

My point is Rob!............what are you waiting for??

Re: Advice on Early Retirement needed

Zipper and Ol Rancher,
You are right. The atmosphere in schools has changed. Testing accountability, new programs and evaluations based on "outcomes' The administration in many cases are afraid of everyone but the teachers.
Rob, are you happy? What is the point.
I have been happier since working part time. I can say that if this position became a burden I would leave.
