    I went back to college to finish a degree in Social Sciences when I was in my late 50s and proceeded to look around for a job after graduation.

    As it turned out, the only jobs in the local area were for preschool teachers. So I went back and took the additional Early Childhood Education classes needed to qualify for a job as a preschool teacher.

    Well, one of the factors in my decision making was that I didn't have children of my own. I had no idea what it was like working with young children and I felt that something was missing.

    As it happens, I landed a job where I spent about half my time with 3/4 year olds and half my time with school age children. And, that year of teaching left me with some wonderful memories--I loved it.

    In my earlier career I was pulling down well over $100K per year and my salary as a preschool teacher didn't come close, but it was time well spent and I have no regrets.

    The only trouble with retirement is...I never get a day off!
