I retired from teaching in 2015.
It has been difficult not having a place to go every day and see the children. I missed this interaction the most. I do not miss all the politics the teaching profession has become.
My husband had passed away so this made it even more difficult for me.
It is not an easy transition without a daily routine.
It has become a bit easier now.
To get my "kid" fix, I volunteer a few hours a week at an intercity elementary school.
I also am involved with church activities and many friends. Having my son and his family near by helps me too.
I feel it's important to try new things. Also belonging to the silver sneakers exercise program is great.
Any other ideas would be great.
I have seen several other retirees sitting home all day and that depresses me.
Thanks for this site
