On ‘The View,’ Obama discusses post-presidency

President Obama said he wants to spend more time working with children when his presidency ends. 

Obama made the remark during an appearance on ABC's "The View." A preview of his appearance was posted online Monday night. 

“The thing that I think I would enjoy most is spending time working with kids,” Obama said when asked, “What are you going to do with the rest of your life?” by co-host Barbara Walters. 

Before answering, Obama laughed, saying, “First things first here, we do have an election ahead.”

A former law professor, Obama said that he misses being in a classroom, but that whatever he does after leaving office would not necessarily involve teaching.

Obama offered the possibly to “create mentorships, and apprenticeships, giving young people the sense of possibility and opportunity.”

First lady Michelle Obama also took part in the interview. The segment with the Obamas will air Tuesday.
