100 year old teacher is still teaching. Probably teaching history 1st hand.

Leaving the working world behind is a dream for many Americans, but one  99-year-old teacher from Chicago has been teaching since 1947, and she plans to  keep it that way,  CBS Chicago reports.

Olivia Neubauer, who turns 100 in two weeks, teaches reading to  kindergartners and pre-kindergartners.

She calls her students darling, and sings their praises, but her own  children, a 65-year-old son and a 60-year-old daughter aren’t fond of her still  teaching.

They want her to retire, but Neubauer told CBS Chicago, “If I had my choice,  I’d just come back.”

In addition to enjoying her students, she likes the fact that she isn’t  sitting down to watch television all the time.

One thought on “100 year old teacher is still teaching. Probably teaching history 1st hand.

  1. This morning Ms. Olivia Neubauer was ask how many children do she have? She said two. Age 30 and 28. If that is so, were they adopted or did she give natural child birth herself?

    I find that remarkable(:
