About alwayslearning

I was a NYC public school teacher for 25 years and have recently retired from teaching. I'm a fairly young retiree and PD helped me make the decision. When something so life altering happens you reevaluate your choices (thank goodness I had some.) I am now teaching and tutoring part time and I'm involved in community theater, writing, acting and directing. I now live in Brooklyn and taught and lived on the wonderful Lower East Side of Manhattan where my mother was born. I struggle to understand what's happened to me and I face it better, I think, because you - PLM- exists.
