Close One Door, Open Another

It's that time of the year again. Elementary students are cleaning out their desks to find homework (saying out loud, "I told you I did that page!") several months overdue. Teachers are spraying shaving cream on desk tops for children to smear and scribble in...a fun way to clean the desks getting them ready for the next group of children to come bounding through the door in Aug.

School years are a great deal like the rides at an amusement park. Teachers and students get on a ride, sometimes enjoying it, sometimes not, but either way, the ride does end. They rest a bit, and then it's time to get on another ride. It's that way , year after year, until the teachers retire and students graduate. It's that time of the year.

This card is for a relative who is retiring from a teaching career, and it's like a career in education.....there's no money in it!
