The End...


This is a photo of the last 5th grade classroom I worked as I have decided to really, really retire. 

There are no desks or chairs in this room as this particular portable classroom and nine others like it are destined for the landfill over the summer. The students will return in September to two new modern multi-story classrooms with all the new amenities that the state requires.

There will be parts of the job I'll miss:  The teachers and staff with whom I'm on a first name basis and even more than a few students that I recognize by sight if not by name. 

And so without further ado, the lights are off, classroom door is locked and the key returned to the school office...



--The End--

...Mark, Just a Substitute Teacher

Enjoy your retirement! I started reading your blog when I started subbing several years ago. I'm about to enter my third year of full-time teaching, and I still do things I read here (like "put a wet paper towel on it"). God bless
