Last year I thought I would miss everything about teaching, including parent teacher conferences, especially parent teacher conferences. I was wrong.
I spent parent-teacher evening covering a class at the college for a friend. I made lots of $$$ and helped out a good person.
Parent-teacher afternoon was spent at the Discovery Times Square, being a CSI agent, riding the tram (something my husband has wanted to do for years) and ending with dinner at a great place on Roosevelt Island (Groupon special--dinner for 2 $19!). Even the subway ride home was great. I met a former calculus student who thanked me for making his class fun and giving so much to them.
Don't mean to rub it in, but I am learning there is plenty of life after retirement.
