Life After Teaching Resource Center

What is The Perfect Retirement?

David will explain the problem.

When you retire, in addition to money, you are giving up important nonmonetary needs like social interaction, stimulation, challenge, routine, and so on.

Life After Teaching is based on finding alternative activities to replace satisfactions lost from teaching.

With over 30 years of academic and practical experience in retirement lifestyle (non-financial)  planning, Dr. Alan Roadburg created Life Goal Planning – a unique and extremely effective set of practical tools to replace satisfactions lost from work. It all started with an idea back in 1986 and it has evolved into The Life After Teaching Workshop.

Workshop Participant Comments

Excellent – Very informative and exposed areas of retirement planning that I was totally unaware existed. I would suggest that this workshop should be available to all employees contemplating retirement.

This course was excellent. The way it was presented was perfect. I have learned quite a lot from this and think it is a must for those with 10 years at least to their retirement.

The program was very informative. I now have a much better understanding about retirement. I wish I could have had this program 10-15 years ago.

I thoroughly enjoyed the session. The information I received has made me think of retirement in a different light.
