Default Retired!

Last Friday I walked away from the classroom. 26 years teaching 8th grade math and algebra. That and 20 years teaching college algebra for local college in the prison system and last 16 years working for NASA in summer in their education department. Approximately 4500 students over that time period.
My phone number is the same 4095432490, but email is now:
billdecker446@gmail.com
My new boss is very demanding, but at least no more paperwork or idiot parents
Till our paths cross, take care, shoot straight

Congrats on a well deserved retirement. I was to retire on Friday but they talked me into working part-time for another year. Foe some reason I just couldn't pull the trigger.

Thank you also again for all the work and efforts put into the Glenn Parker Memorial Shoot. You will be greatly missed in SE Texas.

God bless, Sir.

Good luck on your new profession. Everyone thinks that teachers sit around and sip cocktails when they retire most have to find a second career.

Wish you well.

Depends on how long you plan to live.
Personally I've invested in land so if push came to shove I could sell it but I have a retirement and am currently working a business so I can buy more land.
If you don't work for a corporate entity that uses your money and theirs to provide a retirement then I'd suggest at least 10% of your income invested wisely.
