Congratulations Andy and Beth on two wonderful careers! The Airline Community School has been so fortunate to have you both. We have always loved our January trips to Aurora for the Winter Solstice Tournament. The highlight has been getting to experience the extraordinary community and atmosphere of The Airline School.

Teaching is a noble, tough, but often rewarding career. Thank you for your service to Education and ME Chess.

docendo, discimus!

congratulations and well done.

as a recent retiree myself, the usual suggestion is to relax and start enjoying life, but i'm sure you've been doing that all along anyway.

Congrats Andy
