So, little known fact about me is that I work at the same middle school I attended. Cool, right? The coolest part of that is that I get to work beside some of my teachers...the same people who inspired me as a student now inspire me as a teacher and colleague. Well, one of the greatest inspirations in my life, my 6th grade English and Ancient History teacher, is retiring after 30 (thirty!) years teaching. To invoke some Simba here, guess who will be teaching Ancient History (as well as my usual Latin) next year? That's right, me! So exciting. Circle of life, right? Well, the other night we threw a great retirement party and I wanted to share three very budget friendly, very easy, and most of all, impact-making and effective party ideas. These ideas could easily be applied to any party: birthday, anniversary, retirement, even a wedding.
