    stay put, get through the rough times and plug away until she got her 30 yrs in and now she can retire completely with full pension at the age of 55.  So few can do that.

      My wife will also be lucky enough to retire while she's still young enough to pursue something else if she chooses - something more fulfilling without the money pressure. Sadly, I don't think that will be a reality for many teachers younger than her.

      •  Yes and in my sister's case, she wants to move (0+ / 0-)

        back to the northeast near family after living down south for 30 years. Then she says the pension at least pays her bills until she decides where to move and gets settled. Then she may decide to a part time job that she can do more for enjoyment and a little extra money instead of having to work fulltime.
