After retiring from teaching, I am enjoying my "second career" as a substitute teacher for Gwinnett Schools.  I am still able to be involved in education, but from a different point of view.  I appreciate the flexible schedule that being a substitute gives me. The added income allows me the ability to travel and participate in additional family activities.  I truly look forward each day to being around students and teacher colleagues again!
