Message - To quote a buddy who retired a few years ago - "When I first started teaching I couldn't believe how much they were going to pay me to stand in front of a bunch of kids. Now 33 years later I can't believe how much they are going to pay me NOT to stand in front of a bunch of kids!" - Thanks Fitz.
Enjoy your careers.

I feel like I have been on a glorious journey; feeling extremely lucky to have been a teacher.

Teaching is touching so many lives and helping students learn the lessons of life. But when you teach well you make a difference in all the lives you touch. You share a part of yourself knowing that each child drinks in what you are saying and applies that to their own lives.

Yes, teaching is a process that will continue throughout life. I will miss my students, parents and fellow teachers.

My new journey continues, where will it lead? I do now know, but I am prepared for my new challenge.
