  1. Happy Retirement To A Great Teacher
    Poet: C. A. Lynch


    Teachers influence many children
    And you have, that is a given.
    Caring, over the years you have shown
    For kindness, you are known.

    The knowledge that you shared
    Shows us how much you cared
    Teaching was not just a job for you
    It was a love, we can see by what you do.

    The school won't be the same
    With you, we surpassed and overcame
    Challenges we all did face
    But, you made the school a better place.

    So when you have retired we will recall
    Your smile as we walk down the hall.
    We will miss you so
    We really hate to see you go.

    But as you retire we wish you well
    As a teacher, we think you are swell
    We say so long, but not farewell
    We hope retirement treats you well.



  2. We Thank You
    Poet: C. A. Lynch


    We thank you for the teaching you did
    We thank you for loving us kids.
    We thank you for the patience you have shown
    We thank you for putting up with our groans.

    Now as you retire we wish you
    Happiness in all you do
    Relaxation for all your days
    We will miss you always.

    You are a teacher we will not forget
    You leave a legacy of positive mindsets
    Happy Retirement to a teacher who
    Helped us kids to continue to grow



  3. A Teacher
    Poet: Samatha C. Ringle


    Of all the professions you could have been
    A teacher you were, you picked up your pen
    You showed us many learning tricks
    As a teacher, you we pick.

    But now you are retiring
    A new door for you is opening
    We wish nothing but happiness for you
    Happy Retirement you are due!



  4. No More
    Poet: Tom S. Gold


    No more books
    No more kids
    No more dirty looks
    No more messy lids.

    No more tests to mark
    No more recess breaks
    No more loud remarks
    No more putting on the brakes.

    You now get to retire
    Look forward to the future
    No more routines
    And no more daily structure

    Congrats to you
    You will be missed you know
    A great teacher you have been
    Losing you for us is a great blow.



  5. No Longer Teach?
    Poet: C. A. Lynch


    Retirement doesn't mean you will no longer teach
    But you may find the setting may be a different place
    You may end up teaching on a beach
    Imagine teaching in a different space.

    There are still those around you that need
    Knowledge that you can impart
    Helping others, you will succeed
    We know you have a big heart.

    So retire from the classroom
    But never from teaching
    Continue to see people bloom
    Imagine the people you will be reaching!
