I'm with you, joanna. I've found what I love to do. I just wish that I
was making more money at it so I could do it all the time...

A wonderful story
As a former teacher (I retired at the ripe age of 30) i can understand why this lady feels like she can go and on, few jobs give the satisfaction that teaching offers, it is challenging, rewarding and totally consuming. Thanks for sharing.

You're absolutely right, Talion. All we seem to hear about today are all
teachers needed and all the teachers jumping ship for more hospitable vocational shores...

Of course they can, TAPS. Never too old to learn...

This is a great human interest story, especially considering nowadays we only speak/hear about the failings and short comings of the public school system.

I would love to be one of her students.  If they can have a teacher of 88 couldn't they have a student of 69?
