It was really hard to volunteer today. No regular parking place, no place to put my purse, no key to get in, and kids hugging me...adults commenting, I guess it might hurt my feelings if nobody noticed I was there, but I guess today answered my question about do I miss it. No. A kid asked why I retired. I said I was tired of making all that money and wanted to give being poor a trial. He looked pretty confused. School is a good place to me. I like kids and teachers. I even like administrators mostly. But they keep wanting more crap for their nickel. It isn't the administrators' fault, but I'm convinced if I teach faster than they can learn, I haven't taught it at all. I'm better out of it.
