"We, MTA Retired Members Committee (RMC), are writing to thank you for conducting your presentation at the 2020 MTA Virtual Retired Members Gathering. The Virtual Gathering was a great success and the presentation content, like in your presentation, was the primary reason why. This was the RMC’s first program utilizing the virtual format and, in light of the success of the Virtual Gathering, we will be discussing future virtual programing. Any feedback you can provide about your experience as a presenter would be greatly appreciated."
"Thank you for a most informative and inspiring presentation. You have challenged all of us to live our lives to the fullest and to explore every opportunity. Thanks again."
"Thank you for your presentation on the challenges and pleasures of retirement. It was wise and funny. I myself just retired from public school teaching. (I was a middle and high school English teacher.) I am only 58. I didn't want to retire, but a fairly catastrophic medical event a few years ago, which resulted in my disability, prevents me from teaching any longer. So I do understand what you mean when you talk about the grieving process that follows (or rather, should follow) when your career, and a large part of your identity, suddenly slip away. What the first years of my retirement will look like I am not sure, and my situation is complicated by the fact that my wife is still working full time. Perhaps I will do some writing. There is a "teacher" book somewhere inside me. Maybe I will find a way to write it."
