Good on you. I retired as a teacher two years ago after 28 years. I bounced around for a few years and finally went back to school and never looked back. It was by far the best job I ever had. It didn't pay as much as some others but I have a comfortable retirement and I had an adequate amount of time off during those years to the point that other family members were jealous. I will never regret the decision. Hopefully you will not.
