Today is my last day of work.
I am retiring after teaching at the same school for twenty years.
I loved it.
It was a great job while it lasted but when educating children became big business it all went bad.
Tums in the morning bad.
Pepcid at night bad.
Tylenol all day bad.
Teaching children is simple. Very, very simple.
Clear directions and time to practice is all that is needed but when people have to justify huge salaries, things get complicated.
Too complicated and ridiculously ineffective for someone who really cares.
So I had to go.
