What are you going to do once you retire? Are you going to miss it'? These are the questions I've been hearing recently. I've never been on to count the days; it only seems to extend the time. I really don't know what my future will be, but I plan on ex- ploring my options. Will I miss it? Yes! This was probably the most difficult decision I've ever made. but I'm confident that it's the right one. After spending my entire adult life teaching hundreds of children it will be hard to leave it behind. l'll miss the kids and I'll miss my wonderful co-workers. Children have a way of touch- ireg our lives and tying us to,our community. That will be hard to let go of. As much as I will miss this im- portant part of my life, 1 truly am looking forward to whatever lies ahead. It truly is a mixed bag of emotions. Thank you everyone tbr a very fulfilling career.
