A fabulous Hawaiian vacation, a rope, the school year, a good book, a delicious meal, and a career. What do these all have in common? They all have an end. And as the familiar saying goes, "all good things must come to an end." So it is with very mixed emotions I say good-bye to not only my darling little firsties but my career as a teacher. I am officially retired!
After 38 wonderful, crazy, stressful, tiring, unforgettable, rewarding, fun years-- it's time to cap my red pen, turn the Smart board off, put away my pointer and say good-bye.
As I begin a new chapter in my life, it's hard to leave the old behind. Teaching gets in your blood and I know I will not be able to survive without it. I'm teaching piano lessons and I'm teaching children in my church. So hopefully I can get my teaching fix. I also have a notebook full of ideas for teaching packets that I never had time to make. So please don't 'unfollow' me just because I'm an 'old-retired' teacher. Hopefully, I'll still be able to contribute to a profession that I cherish with all my heart!
My sweet husband and caring children sent me 38 gorgeous roses for my retirement open house.
I have been so blessed over the years to work with wonderful, caring, creative, and smart teachers, administrators, parents, children, and friends that have changed my life forever. I take with me many cherished and precious memories.
from the bottom of my heart!
