I've been working part time now for 5 years with the local library as an outreach story reader. I travel to local daycares and headstarts and we have a 30 minute story time. I enjoy it as much as the children, we share books, songs, fingerplays and laughter. Prior to this I was employed by the local telephone company for 25 years. When my department closed I was was not old enough to retire but thanks to good investing and a still employed husband I was able to just bow out for a while. I like the part time job because you have more time for "living", when my husband says lets get out of town for a few days, I'm already there! The only drawback is that no benefits or insurance usually go with part time work.
