  1. Interesting. My teaching classroom days are long gone and Tubularsock found that for 131/2 years it consumed all my time and energy. I just loved it.

    I had friends that worked in special ed and marveled how they survived all the crap that the administration put on them.

    But I realized that with high school the kids stayed the same age every year but I grew older and the time came that I was at my peak performance. I had promised myself when I started that when I reached my height performance the only direction was down. And before the down occurred I’d move to something new.

    Many of my colleagues had stayed on after their peak out of the fear of change. They went to administrative jobs and were piss poor at them. The ones who stayed in the classroom became
    piss poor at something that they had loved at one time.

    It was sad really. Most died early.

    But I moved on ……… and I’m still having fun!

    The information you are providing is very valuable to those coming along and your knowledge will be helpful for those who are working on their own growth.

    Good luck ………..
