After parents, it is the teacher who instills not only education but also the right guidance, mentorship, and values of life. All his life, a teacher is devoted to only one thing and that is to impart the education to his students. 


But teachers are definitely more than the knowledge instillers. They also impart the very important traits of success apart from education alone. Students learn traits like leadership, teamwork, hard work, and work ethic usually through their teachers only.


Therefore, after devoting their entire life to building the foundation of success, every teacher deserves a befitting retirement wish from his students. And that’s what this post is all about. We have curated some top-notch retirement wishes for the teachers under various tonalities such as funny and emotional.


Retirement Wishes for Teachers and Professors


An era of great service has come to an end. Sir, you have imparted great values to your students apart from the education alone. I will never forget the time when you made special efforts for me during the low phase of my student life. I hope that you now enjoy all the hobbies that you had to sacrifice during your time in teaching! Happy Retirement!




Dear Mam, as much as we want you to continue this very noble profession, I truly understand the limitations that come with age. You have been a source of inspiration, knowledge, and wisdom and I can’t the Almighty enough for giving me a teacher like you. Enjoy the retirement phase!





Dear sir! While you surely are taking retirement, I definitely don’t want you to retire from the joy and exuberance of life. Despite so many years of knowledge, you still are a breath of fresh air and it has been my honor to be your student! Have a great retirement life, Sir!




If there is a sole reason for my intensity and hard work, I would probably credit you for it. You have been instrumental in tuning my mind for success and hard work. It is unlikely that there will be any teacher like you. Happy Retirement dear Sir! We will always be in touch!




Despite years of success and achieving financial freedom, I still remind myself of the hard times when we used to ponder over our math problem. The nostalgia of that time is something that I will never forget. Your aura and way of thinking were amazingly refreshing! I am sure now you will have plenty of time to contemplate your ideologies and philosophies. Enjoy the retirement, Sir!




There was a time when I was afraid of your strict demeanor. However, upon knowing you deeply, I came to know about your tender-heartedness and the love that you had for every student. There is no student I know that doesn’t think highly of you Mam! I feel sad about your retirement but I am happy that you will now find plenty of free time! Happy retirement to you Mam!




Wishing of retirement to the female teachers by the male students




Dear Mam! As much you had a stern demeanor around us, we did realize how much your heart cared for us! Chemistry and you seemed inseparable!

You may not have spoken too much but your efforts have made us extremely successful in our lives. And all that is credited to you! We wish every student gets a teacher like you! All the best and luck in your retirement!

I wish you all the best wishes for your retirement. Now you can take a sigh of relief that notorious students like me will not bother you!

Sample Farewell speech for a retiring teacher by a student



Respected Sir!


There have been only a handful of occasions in my life till now, where I have felt deeply emotional for something which doesn’t involve my brother, sister and parents, and friends! In all these years, I never thought a bond of teacher and student would become so enormous and sentimental.


Your decision to retire came as a sudden jolt to me out of nowhere. Even though you have been my teacher, my mentor for nearly 9 years, it only feels yesterday that I had my first session of science with you.


I remember the memories where I despised you for complaining to my mother about my mischievous activities. Needless to say, but when I grew up, I realized the lesson that you wanted to teach me.


Studying with you has always been fun and exciting. Your analogies were hilarious, right on point and immensely helped me in the preparation of the subjects. Just like every other relationship between two people, we too had the highs and lows, ebbs and flows, troughs and crests but your maturity and guidance tremendously helped in overcoming those problems.


I respect for you has grown stupendously over the years, not solely due to our knowledge of the subjects, but for your altruism, for the relentless efforts that you strive for perfection in your notes and for the social causes that you are devoted to! It would be an understatement to say but you not only impart education to me but also made me a better human being! And I am quite sure of making you proud in the upcoming years through hard work and persistence, qualities which you have sowed in me in all these years.


While life will certainly go on and on, it would quite a while to become comfortable with your absence from now on! Your shoes will not be filled easily by some other teacher! I wish you all the happy retirement years. You have done all the hard work and now it is time for you to take a sigh of relief. May Almighty give all the love, happiness and joy to you and your family. Thank you for everything, Sir!




What do you write in a retirement card for a teacher? Examples covered




The biggest reward for any teacher is the success of his students! But it was you who sowed the seeds of success in my mind. The branches of the tree of success that you sowed into my being are now giving me fruitful returns and I can only thank you for that! I hope you are only retiring from this profession and not from the joys of life! Happy Retirement Sir!




Dear Mam! Ever since I came upon the news of your retirement, I could not hold my tears! While on one hand, it makes me sad to see you retire, and on the other, I am happy that you will now be free from the annoying students, school politics and laborious work. You will now have plenty of time to pursue your hobbies, outings, and vacations. Enjoy the retirement Mam!




Emotional cum sorry wishes to your teacher on his retirement day for your unintentional wrongdoings in the past




Students can be notorious at times. Spreading rumors, creating pranks and making fun of teachers behind the backs can certainly hurt the sentiments of a teacher. Being elderly and mature, they tend to forgive every such act of student! However, if you feel that you unintentionally hurt the sentiments of a teacher and regret it, then the retirement occasion is a perfect way to say sorry and give your teacher a nice blessing.




On this day, where my eyes are swelled up with tears of retirement, I can only say sorry to you for not giving enough credit and respect during our time as student-teachers. We may have uttered some wrong words in the past but call it naivety and rush of youth, we didn’t mean any disrespect to you! However, my actions in the past may have hurt you but on this retirement day, I can say with all my heart that you will be one of the finest teachers that I ever had in my life. I hope you all love, joy, and health on this retirement.




Our mischief and pranks may have caused you a lot of trouble during our time, but we didn’t realize the gravity until we saw it happening with us! I never had the balls to offer you an apology but after coming to know about your retirement, I mustered up the courage to say I am Sorry! You are a man of big heart and I know that you have already forgiven me! I pray to the Almighty to give you and your family an astounding fulfillment in life! The world now has one less immensely talented teacher and mentor!




How do you honor a retiring teacher?




A profession like teaching deserves more than the praises and words for their noble work throughout their life. To honor a retiring teacher, you can do the following things for him


  1. Give him a bouquet of flowers acknowledging his hard work and sincerity in your upbringing.


  1. Preparing a retirement speech that you can say out loud in front of the entire school, college or university.


  1. Wish him retirement messages on Social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, and YouTube. In the video, you can include various pictures of him during his teaching tenure!


  1. Gift him his favorite books. As a nostalgic gesture, you can even give him the books which he taught you when you were his student.


What to keep in mind while preparing such messages for your retiring teacher?




For giving you the knowledge, time, and effort and for propelling you to success, they crave nothing more than the respect and appreciation. While you can include a funny tone in your message, you have to be careful to not write it in a disrespecting manner.


You can thank your retiring teacher for making the subject (whatever it was) easier for you to comprehend! Then you can also include his emotional and altruistic attributes such as patient, energetic, helping the needy students without giving a second thought. And lastly, you can mention the golden period of his life which he is about to live, which is retirement. You can mention all the activities that he would be able to do now as he will now have ample time to enjoy it!




Final Thoughts!




We hope that you have enjoyed the various retirement teachings of your teacher. Being a student ourselves a few years back, we truly acknowledged the contribution of a teacher in shaping our mind for success, empathy and altruism. The profession of a teacher will always remain noble and will ever be so! On behalf of our team at TyoHaarUtsav, we give our warmest retirement wishes to all the teachers in the world. Until next time, take care!
