Life Changes


So this is where I'm at. I've retired early from teaching. On Friday I left my full-time teaching post after six happy years at a wonderful primary school. I've had various roles there including three years as a full-time class teacher. And, like a lot of other teachers I haven't seen or taught my Year 3 class since March 20th. However, I've been in school every week since then and have seen about a third of my class during lockdown. I've had communication with the rest of my class via email and phone calls but this wasn't how I anticipated ending my teaching career. My decision to leave was made before coronavirus and I handed my notice in during February so I felt under no pressure to change my mind. Teaching nowadays is full-on and exhausting and was not working for me or my family.

It's been a very strange end to my teaching career but a decision I know I won't regret. A simpler life beckons...

  3. Congratulations on your retirement you won't regret it. I will have been retired 3 years in September. I chose to go at 60 from the Civil Service. No stress, no shifts and enjoying a simple life living on less.

  6. Happy retirement! I am also retiring at the end of August, after 36 years with the same employer. Am a little scared about how I will adjust to the changes, but excited about opportunities ahead!

  7. Your experience is very inspiring! I often ask myself: "When can I retire?" I hope to retire earlier, as much as possible, how it will turn out I don’t know, but I try very hard)
