The retirement years are often thought of as opportunities to take up hobbies or simply relax. But when Paul Heasly retired from a 30-year career in Information Technology at The Boeing Company, he decided to fulfill a his long-held dream of becoming a teacher. This school year he began teaching algebra and geometry at Issaquah High School outside Seattle, Washington.
Heasly’s love of teaching is also motivated by a strong need in the aviation industry. “All the baby boomer techno guys like myself are getting ready to retire. And there aren't enough engineers and mathematicians in the pipeline to cover the need.”
With four full classes a day, Heasly believes he has a unique opportunity to shape the minds of tomorrow’s aerospace experts. “I'm always enthusiastic about my time at Boeing. It was a great job. Hopefully some of them will see that and catch it.”
