GOODBYE!!!!

Dear Parents and students,                                                                  8/8/17

I hope you are having a great summer. First of all, let me give all of you a big "THANK YOU" for all of the cards, candies, gifts, gift certificates and of course and most important smiles, hand shakes, hugs and well wishes. I still haven't decided if you were sad to see me retire or just happy to see me go-just kidding. You made my final year of teaching my "Best" ever! Great students, great parents, great community and a great school-Meeker.

As you know, I had a retirement home built in Venice, Florida, but did not arrive until July 18th because I did a road trip across the US. I am settling in here in Florida. I have seen a bobcat family in my backyard, an alligator in my lagoon, many dolphins in the ocean and several exotic birds such as the Sandhill Crane. The average temperature here in summer is about 92 degrees. I love it!

I read all of the reflection letters while enjoying the white sand beaches here. I enjoyed them greatly! Several made me cry while most made me laugh-so hard. I hope you have a wonderful seventh grade. I will miss you all and teaching, but I am thoroughly enjoying my endless summer and I will officially begin retirement on 8/30/17!  

Since you don't read my SWIFT homework site, I will leave my new home address so you can write me, but there isn't a guarantee I will write back:

Mr. Ken Roberts

283 Carlino Dr.

Nokomis, Fl.  34275

Best of luck in the future,
