Can you taste the love?

Kinda salty and wrinkly. Like kissing a peanut.

pffft

/what's her handicap?
 
2014-01-13 12:18:09 AM
Sure, real "sappy". Until we find out she's been getting 15-year olds drunk and blowing them.
 
2014-01-13 12:18:31 AM
And still hasn't paid off her student loan!
 
2014-01-13 12:19:23 AM
She's awesome. 'Nuff said.

They just keep pushing and pushing the retirement age...

Yep. This is the future. They'll work ya until you drop.

So she was born during the Great Wwar and probably started teaching before WWII?  Betcha she's a lefty.

Well yeah. But she would have only been 75 then.

This, on the other hand, is sick.

She puts me to shame...something to aspire too.

frankly, I don't plan on retiring...prepping for it...but I think I'll keep going if I can.

Only if she is older than 155. She started teaching at 81 according to TFA.

Christ. I haven't lived half as long, and I'm already sort of done with it.

To make it to 100 without even the minor comfort of a little senility? That's some sort of damnation. The never-ending work years would just be the salt in the wound.

Farking genetics, how do they work?
 
2014-01-13 12:31:56 AM
She is probably teaching the same curriculum they did 100 years ago. Home Ec is the one course that never changes.

Powered human flight began only 10 years before she was born, women demonstrated for the right to vote when she was born, WW1 started when she was in diapers, Prohibition began when she was a small child and ended 2 years before the Rural Electrification Act passed when she was 21, when she was in grade school, most kids walked to school, some rode a horse, and most went without electricity or indoor plumbing, the great depression started and Hoover Damn was built when she was a teen, WW2 started when she was a young adult, she saw the creation and growth of the middle class, she saw the first human object orbit the Earth when she was 43, Kennedy was assented when she was 49, and the Civil Rights Act passed when she was 50, she watched the first human step on the moon at 55, and in her 50s she saw the British Invasion, hippies, and Kent State, Nixon resigned when she was 60, etc, etc, etc. She's lived through an amazing time. I'm jealous of her students.

A few years ago, there was a substitute teacher here in Des Moines who was 85 or so.

One of the middle schools brought him in as a long term sub for most of the year when their boys PE coach  had a heart attack  in the first semester.  This sub was out there running laps with the kids and from the front of the pack, too.  The kids loved him.

The school had only one parental complaint.  Some parfent went to the principal and told him, "Look, my son and all his friends really like the guy, but could you get him to stop him from telling tall tales like being in WW II?"  The principal replies, "umm he really was in WW II."

I think the guy is still subbing and must be pushing 90 now.

TFA said she started working sometime in the 1990s.

Yeah, good thing there's been no advancements in the world of kitchen devices, food prep, and nutrition in the last 100 years!

Des Moines, IA? There was a sub for one of the HS science classes who dropped a few F-bombs in class because the wrestlers wouldn't shut up.

Congrats to her for hanging on in a job she doesn't need, and probably can't do very well anymore, so that some younger person won't suffer the horrors of being able to have a job and pay their bills.

There's cynical, and then there's STFU and GTFO, okay?

I understand your need for attention, but it would have helped if you'd have read either the article or the thread before posting.

No wonder there's no jobs out there.

Time to get a hobby and let someone else have a turn.

Her name is Agnes.  It's not often you find a 100-year old that's younger than her name sounds.
 
2014-01-13 02:50:14 AM
There's a good chance that she'll be giving her students a first hand look at the circle of life while she's teaching a class.

Dude.  She lives to work.

Job goes away, I'd give her 30 days, max.

Pfffft.  Every nun I had as a teacher in grade school was as least 100 years old.

Honestly, I bet there is some younger teacher who could use that job. It's not nice to say, but it's true.

And I'll be some Republican uses her as an example of why the retirement age should be raised to at least 85.

I just hope by the time that happens with medical advancements, we never have to drop.
