As the school year draws to a close the Foundation is bidding a fond farewell to a number of staff across the three campuses. A total of 15 teachers are retiring this year (some taking early retirement), representing an incredible total of almost 300 years in Ecolint classrooms between them.

Jill Young Gorton
Jill Young has been an English teacher at La Chât Secondary since 2001.

Our photographer didn't managed to catch up with Martin Kasparek, a Music teacher at LGB since 2001, nor with Muriel Cantraine, who worked in Administration at La Chât and retired in April. And finally, we had anticipated including Serge Hazanov, Maths teacher at LGB Secondary School, on this list, but he has agreed to teach on for one more year on a part-time basis.

We wish each and every one of our soon-to-be former colleagues the very best for the future and hope that they will keep in touch via our alumni community.

Mr. Stahl, If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well It were done quickly: if the assassination Could trammel up the consequence, and catch With his surcease success; that but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here, But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, We'ld jump the life to come. But in these cases We still have judgment here; that we but teach Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor. This is a passage you had me memorize for extra English, Job well done. Congrats. .

Mr. Wingate, congratulations on your retirement. In 1985-86 I was in your homeroom and history class. 30 years later I still remember a statement you made to us after we complained about homework being issued over fall break you said "This is not a Holy-day, but rather a vacation you are merely vacating the building." Sometimes the lessons we remember the most are those you can't find in book. Thank you for the memory, I use it on my own children. Congratulations. Alyson Ameigeiras (Chilcott)
