I am retiring in four months.
To paraphrase a colleague whom I have never met, “I will be retiring from Weston, not from education.” After 21 years at Weston — and 44 years altogether in teaching — it’s time.
I told my colleagues before the break; I told my students yesterday and today. I wanted to share it with them before the news just leaked out and they heard it through the grapevine.
More info later about what I will be doing after I retire. For now I just want to concentrate on my job at Weston— and also my job at the Crimson Summer Academy, from which I am not retiring.
