I'm a high school principal. A few years ago, at another school, we had some teachers that liked to stir things up. I went to an auction and found a giant (about 3-foot) wooden spoon. We had bi-weekly faculty meetings, and the one that caused the most problems would win "The Spoon." I would hang it above their door until someone else won it. They were pissed at first, but they eventually got the message.

My last assignment before retirement, we had a shitbag of the week trophy for when someone screwed something up. It was pretty funny. Those little goat-type awards are actually good for esprit we corps.

I'm not so sure that isn't as bad as being a cop or fireman. Everyone hates you and your life is in danger everyday. Bless you for your service!

I would say everybody loves firemen, but West Webster and numerous other examples prove otherwise. My department was happy when I became a State Fire Investigator because it meant I got to carry on duty so I took the high risk ambulance calls as well in the fly car so we didn't have to commit an engine crew to them.

The last school I was at started the Commissioned School Security Officer (CSSO) program. We received training and we carried on the job. When I left for another school, I got to keep the HK VP9sk that I carried.

My current school considered the CSSO program, but decided against it.

I'm in Utah, so while I have to provide my own gun, I can carry concealed at school. About 4 of us are legal to do so, the other two retired recently.

I "could" retire in 4 years at 60% of my pay, but that's not too attractive. On the other hand, we just lost a teacher to the county, he was spraying weeds all summer the last few years, and they offered him full time, more pay, better insurance....and no masks! I need to start making friends like that.

Yeah, I thought about early retirement as well, but I've put in too many years to leave that much money on the table. I'm eligible for full retirement in 7 years, but the TDROP option is attractive. I've thought about other options, but when I finally retire, I actually want to stop working. I guess I've got some time to think about it before it I have to make a decision.

This is my early retirement job. 4 days a week all holidays off with 3 weeks vacation. No stress.
So easy. Now the people that have only worked there bitch all the time about this or that I am a happy little bee. Looking at going back to school. Because the company pays for it all.
