Re: Lots of teaching materials

    Congratulations on your upcoming retirement!

    I retired in July. I have given lots of things to former interns and I
    have sold lots on Facebook. If you have a local Yard Sale Group
    you can join, you will probably find lots of young moms and
    teachers who would be interested, especially new teachers for the
    upcoming school year.

    I haven't been able to let go of my children's literature yet. :o)
    Hope this helps!
