34 More Years!

Sorry, Hazel. I am not going to follow your lead...not for another 34 years!

89-year-old Hazel Haley is retiring, after teaching English in Florida for 69 consecutive years (54 of them in her last classroom).

Her explanation for this longevity: "My inspiration every day comes from the satisfaction of being with these young people. You know, they give you so much back that is stimulating, exciting and fun....That's been an integral part of my life for most of my life. I depend on it...it's a life force...."

For myself, that's 34 more years? Lets think more like less than or equal to 34 (mod 5)!
