Faith Barndt

Anastasia, I am happy for your retirement. I had to retire early because of the cancer surgery I had. I miss teaching but as time has passed and government agencies overtake education, I am glad to be out of the rat race created here in the US. I hope your retirement allows you to rest, teavel and remember your life as a teacher/-administrator. I love you very much.


I love you, too Faith and I hope that you are safe after Irma hit Florida on Saturday night. I was so worried after what I had read in the papers here and what I watched on TV was even worse! The links below show how we were informed of this terrible disaster. They said the death toll rises to 68! As a matter of fact, I was a bit jealous of Alkis who retired last October. I felt I needed to spend some more time with him. Despite the advantages, being your own boss is not always a bed of roses. For twenty years, I've proudly run my own language school. However, I had to work 12 - 14 hours a day to keep standards at a high level. Right now, I want to be a good housewife! Christina, a young English teacher who has taken over, is an enthusiastic young lady who loves kids and I know she'll do a great job even though she hasn't got a lot of experience. This is why I promised to help out and teach all classes till end of February.

Congratulations on your retirement. I was hoping to retire next year, but I think I am going to wait a couple of more years.


Thank you very much, Kofla. I think I will enjoy my retirement by doing so many things I didn't have time to do when I worked - such as travelling, spending more time with hubby who retired last October, reading more books since I am a bookworm, going out more often, meeting up with friends, to mention only a few.
