Today Was My Last Day as a High School Teacher

I'm still processing that reality. I'll get back to you later with my thoughts about it all. Right now, it seems like a dream.

I didn't know you were a teacher.
Why are you retiring? I have checked your "complete profile" and find not much there.

Farewell, Mr. Miller! You will be sorely missed!

Thank you for your kind words, heather and emily. rf, I've taught for 33 years. It's time to pursue new interests.

I agree with previous comments - you were one of the best teachers I ever had, and one of the reasons I became a history major. Thanks for everything you brought to the job, and good luck in future ventures!!

Although I don't generally post comments, I do check your blog daily and hope you will continue posting your insightful comments, cartoons and articles.
I too was a teacher (41 years).

Mr. Miller, here's toasting to your new freedom! You were a top-notch teacher. I am glad to have had the privilege of being there as one of your students near the beginning of your teaching career. I know I speak for many former students who are grateful to have been so positively influenced by you and your teaching, both inside and outside the classroom.

I hope you find your new retirement completely enjoyable.

Here, here!
