Even the long, orientation day was not so bad. They fed us well. Pictured above is the view outside the window during the talks. The school hot shots talked to us, not at us. Everyone was engaging while explaining the different programs. The president of the school walked around meeting each and every new teacher.
I wasn't ready to retire. I just couldn't take the BS that went with working in a high school anymore. I was depressed about leaving, not willing to spend my days playing bridge and going to lunch. The place I will now be working is ranked in the top 20 by many respected institutions. One place even has it ranked # 6. I'm respected and appreciated and look forward to beginning classes next week.
