Thank you for a wonderful year!
Each of you are special in different ways. I consider it a great honor to have worked with you this year. I wish all the best for your future. Don't let anyone tell you you aren't good enough or can't do something. Prove them wrong like Walt Disney or Albert Einstein.
I can't think of a better class to retire on. Thanks for bringing 31 years of teaching to a pleasant close.
Have a great summer!
