Say cheese!

June 13, 2012

More than 3,000 teachers in Ontario are getting set to retire this summer. Are you about to cross the finish line of your career? Wipe off the chalk dust and get ready for your close-up!

Retirement is a big deal, and we want to share the excitement. Send us a snapshot from your first day of this next phase of your life. We'll use it to create a photo essay that celebrates this milestone with your colleagues.

Along with the photo, please share:

  • your name and the city/town where you live;
  • how long you taught for;
  • what your retirement plans are; and
  • what retirement means to you.

Send your submissions to by July 27. Please note that submissions may be edited for grammar, length and clarity.

The first 50 members to send us their photographs will be entered into a draw to win a $100 Cadillac Fairview shop! gift card.

Please send one photo per email, with a maximum image size of 1 MB.
