iPhriday – school’s out

It’s iPhriday – school’s out

Last day of school

School’s out,

with holidays for some.

Perhaps a longer break for this teacher

bringing an amazing career to an end.

Over 39 years of caring and hard work

Who knows what lies ahead?

It’s always good to see the photos of the first day of school, so I thought I’d document the last day as well. (Technically he’s only taking leave for the rest of the school year but the plan is to use the break to test the waters).

The mediocre teacher tells

The good teacher explains

The superior teacher demonstrates

The great teacher inspires

iPhriday is where we get to share a photo taken with a mobile phone anytime during the week.

Thanks to Lisa at Graydaysandcoffee for starting this Friday fun. My previous iPhriday posts are here – iPhriday posts.

Have a great weekend!

Deb 🙂

PS. Don’t tell him I posted this – he doesn’t want any fuss!

      Thanks Roger – no partying yet until he makes it official. You know him – he’s down playing the whole thing, always humble!

    I hope the “test break” goes well. Incidentally, I like the quote about teachers. There’s a lot of truth to it.

      Thanks very much for your good wishes. I always think of that quote when talking about good teachers. I agree it has a lot of truth in it.

      Yep! He finished officially in January this year and we’re loving our new life and the freedom we both have.
