“THE TWILGHT ZONE” (1959)
THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD (1962)

Original Air Date: 1 June 1962 (Season 3, Episode 37)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN5hkdcEHpA

I was just 6 years old when I first saw the original airing of this episode from the Twilight Zone. (Long before I had any thoughts of becoming a teacher!) For some reason, a couple of years ago I started to think about it. I especially remembered the ending. Professor Ellis Fowler is a teacher who has taught for 51 years. The board of trustees has sent him a letter of retirement. He contemplates his teaching career and comes to the conclusion that everything he has taught was a waste. That is, until he enters “The Twilight Zone”.

I too will be retiring at the end of June 2011. In this episode, Rod Serling the creator of The Twilight Zone really knew what teachers strive for in their careers.
