With the stresses of the faculty position steadily retreating, I am getting some time to reflect and philosophize. This is what anyone would expect from a professor who is about to retire.

I was a music education major before I was anything else. Trumpet was my primary instrument, though like other music ed. majors, I acquired at least a passing familiarity with most of the other instruments of the band/orchestra. Favorite musicians of my past include Al Hirt, Doc Severinsen, and Maynard Ferguson. Lately I have watched and listened to YouTube recordings of Severinsen and Ferguson that were made when they were at the top of their game. They were very impressive musicians. Ferguson has now passed on, Doc Severinsen is 87. They left the world with a rich legacy of music.

I'm not trying in any way to say that I am the Doc Severinsen or Maynard Ferguson of teacher education. But I do feel like I am retiring at the top of my game. Life in the classroom is still very comfortable and natural for me, and my students do well in their courses. Low grades or failures are rare. Research-wise, I have had three national acceptances of publications in the past week, with two more likely on the way. The service component is nearly over for me and that is fine as far as I am concerned. So I feel like I am retiring while I am still at the top of my game.

I've watched others over-stay their time in this profession. I've seen them hang on dearly to their jobs when everyone, including them, knew that they were well past their prime. I don't want that for my students, my administration, or myself. Thank you, Arkansas Tech, for giving me the opportunity for a wonderful career in teacher education. Thank you, former students, for giving my ideas a careful hearing.
