Educator Retirement: Indecision Indecision
by Lorie in Nashville
I have stressed myself to the max with the decision to retire or not after thirty four years as an educator. I have seen more than I can stand of horrible teachers, sad children who have role models like cardi-b and every rapper who uses profanity as a platform to incite idiocy.
I will have a pension and a mortgage (thanks to exiting an abusive marriage and settling for too little in the divorce). Social Security will kick in next year and I would be just fine. I have been offered a part time job, however, 3 days per week but they would not pay me what I asked for.
I am a seasoned speech pathologist but of course, I am a woman of color and sixy plus. What to expect. Ok, so now, I do want a new car,,,, just for fun and to replace a 12year old Honda. However, I am ready to leave this chaotic job with mean young superiors behind.
Blessings to all.
