Today is my first day of retirement. Odd to write this.  I started this journey in 1988 when I left my job in retail to return to university for one more year and fulfill a childhood ambition.  The road to finding permanent work in education was not direct nor easy but as I look back on my career as evidenced in my LinkedIn profile or professional blogs, I see that there is no denying I am a teacher and likely always will remain so.  Clearly, my brand is the biggest giveaway to what I do for a living! So now, that begs the question, should my login be changed to cteachr(retired)?
