In the winter of 2017, I retired from teaching. Though teaching had been my passion and bread and butter for most of my adult life, I chose early retirement in order to better manage my family life and to decrease the amount of stress in my life caused by a very taxing and time-consuming job. It was the best decision I’d made in a very long time. All I could think about was how much free time I’d have. The time constraints I once had would drop like shackles from the feet of a newly freed slave and finally, my time would truly be my own. No time clock to punch in on if I were late anymore. No boss to call and say, “Sorry, but I won’t be able to come to work today because I’m feeling a bit under the weather.”, to either. My life was just beginning again, or so I thought.

  1. I’ve known you to be very creative and talented In many areas since the first month of knowing you. My mother also noticed and began to encourage you. You inspired me at the early age of 9 and because of you, I am still writing, performing and editing to this day!
