Over the years, one by one, we retired and turned in our classroom keys and grade books. Some now substitute or work as paraprofessionals in the classroom, but others are enjoying complete retirement. Two individuals in the photo above (Kris F. and Bill H.) officially retired in May 2016.
Last month, Chuck and Renee G. hosted a BBQ at their house because Bill H. (who moved to Omaha and taught there for nearly a decade) was visiting the area. Former staff who didn't have prior commitments gathered at the BBQ and caught up on each other's lives and reminisced a bit, too.
The recent photo below shows we're all a bit grayer. If you're curious to compare, the names of those in both photos are bold and italicized in the captions.

It was great to visit with a few of my old teaching buddies again.
