I am a retired English teacher. Before I retired from the public school system, I began working with a program entitled Dual Enrollment, a program of cooperation between the local college and the public school system. The program allowed excelling high school seniors to take college courses and receive credit in both high school and college. Working with that program, I got my foot in the door at St. Petersburg College so that, when I retired from the public school system, I became an adjunct instructor at the college. In that role, I had full responsibility for several classes. Being mainly a composition teacher, I eventually became exhausted reading student compositions and learned of another avenue of work at the college–substituting. This position brought me back into the classroom and involved my working not only with composition classes but with classes of literature and even creative writing and reading. There are four reasons I call this the “best job in the world.” (1) I never have to make out lessons plans. (2) I do not grade papers. (3) The job gets me back into the classroom again with young people. And (4) I can say no if I have already made plans to go out for breakfast. Whoops! Another special reason: they even pay me.
