  2. 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!

    What’s long been your way.

    You've strived to do your best
    To nurture young minds for
    Whatever would come next.

  15. 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.

    Poet: Julie Hebert

    When you decided to retire

    No more recess duty.
    Now it's time to live life outside -
    To fly free like a birdy!

    You can get out and explore;
    Start to do all that you wish.
    Go hiking in the mountains
    Or take a swim, or go fish.

    Now that you're retired there are
    So many places to go;
    We'll miss you but wish you
    Fun and exciting times, you know!
