Greentree School's staff and students will be saying goodbye to a teacher and Associate-Principal at the end of the school year, but it's not a forever goodbye.

Cindy Gerodo calls her retirement, rewiring.

"Rewiring means I'm still going to be involved in education or volunteering in some way. I'm not planning on sitting on my deck knitting socks, so rewirement for me is I'm still going in a different direction, but I'm just not going to stop," Gerodo explained.

"I hope to volunteer in classrooms, I'm going to sub and we always have a need for extra hands at the school for children needing someone to listen to them read or the breakfast program."

So, how long have you been a teacher?

"According to my pension statement it's 36.7 (years). It's just awesome, what a privilege. It's been a good run and it continues to be a good run," Gerodo outlined.

The thing Gerodo will miss most is what every teacher usually says, the people.

"My office staff and my little people, plus those people in between. The best part of teaching is the privilege you have to work with people," expressed Gerodo.

Good luck on your future endeavours, Cindy Gerodo.
