She says "I'm just running into....the kids that I taught grade 2, their kids are coming to high school now. You know it's time to retire when..."
The 800 CHAB - DiscoverMooseJaw "Teacher of the Month" is Riverview Collegiate's Jan Stewart. She was nominated by students and colleagues as she retires after 30 years as a local educator.
You know, a number of people I went to high school with are retiring these days after 30 year careers in education, health care and workin' on the railroad.
To be honest with you, I'm finding it all a little overwhelming. It seems like yesterday our teachers were telling us to find a rewarding career that we'd enjoy. It seems like yesterday my parents and grandparents would talk and reminisce and invariably, at some point, someone would say "Time flies".
So, to those of you wrapping up your careers, good for you. Congratulations. And, to the rest? Enjoy...embrace...engage and try to make a difference. Before you know it, it's all over. Time flies.
