Today I spent my final day as a news reporter. I loved the last three years and felt like the work I got to do was exciting. I met so many good people and experienced many events I would have never attended without the job. As a high school teacher, I often taught the newspaper and yearbook classes, so this was a chance to do something I had wanted to do for many years. I am grateful to the editors and other staff members with RiverTown Multimedia for helping me learn how to do the job and for giving me such interesting assignments. I retired once in 2016, but then flunked retirement and went to work again. Now I'm looking forward to trying retirement again.
