Teacher retirement toasts

Here are some teacher retirement toasts written or adapted by SpecialSpeeches. If you cannot do an original toast, feel free to borrow one of these: 

For a high school teacher or advisor….
For all the lessons students really did hear
For the lives you’ve changed throughout the years
Enjoy your retirement secure in the knowledge
That your name is admired in high school and college.

teacher at desk
 "To learn and never be filled is wisdom; to teach and never be weary is love."

For a special mentor... 
Thank you for putting your heart and soul into teaching your students.
You had faith in us…even when we did
not deserve it.
You’ve changed more lives than you could ever know.
female science teacher
For any great teacher....
Of all the teachers great and small
We think that you’re the best of all.
To the joy of learning
And boosts in our earnings.
From colleagues to a retiring teacher...
To your retirement…
No more classes
No more books
No more students’ deadpan looks.
No more calls at 10 at night
From Momma who wants grades made right.
No more meetings after school
With those who will not follow rules.
No more lunchtime duty now
You'll soon have time to eat that chow.
You've said you're ready to retire.
You've reached the point to which we aspire.
But rest assured we’ll be calling you back
To keep you abreast of the fun and the flak.

For any special teacher... 
Your former students wish you well.
The demands you made and the standards you set
Have helped make us what we are today.

Toast that is adaptable according to the speciality of the teacher...
To a teacher who believed the saying
“A little learning is a dangerous thing”
and made his students learn everything
about the Romans and Greeks*...
Your former students salute you.
(*Substitute appropriate topic.)
