I briefly considered getting a teaching cert after the big firing; even took one make-up class, world geography.

But the thought of being "in charge" of 200 middle-schoolers...

I have toyed with the thought of doing some teaching (science, anatomy, etc) ONLY part time after I pull the plug on my current gig. I really enjoyed teaching labs and tutoring when I was in college and grad school. I have a great deal invested in my current career and like many on this site, I am fully aware that when I leave, it's over and there's no going back. Kudos to you for trying this.

Oh my. I am retiring in ten days from teaching AP Calculus and other HS math for a couple decades. You have officially lost your mind.

The kids are great; the grading, administrivia, etc. are a nightmare. I'm also over not going to the restroom when I want to, like a real grownup. LOL

My hat is off to you. My plan is to read all the books I've not had the chance to read, work on my yoga practice, and take up Stand Up Paddleboarding.

That is the beauty of FIRE, right? You can just "be." And others can seek something else!

Assisting another teacher is the best situation because he/she gets to do all the paperwork but you both get to make a pit stop when you need to since there is always someone there to watch the class!
