As the 2018–19 school year comes to a close, 514 veteran educators and support staff members will mark their retirement from Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS). In total, our 2018–19 retirees have contributed a collective 12,399 years of their lives to education, and a total of 9,963 years to Gwinnett schoolchildren. In fact, 56.4% (289) of our retirees have worked their entire careers— in the classroom, office, cafeteria, bus, or shop— in this school system. Among this year’s retirees, 152 have 30 or more years of service in education, 23 have invested 40 or more years in education, and one retiree has 48 years in education! (The names of those with 40+ years are marked with an asterisk.) Our retirees include one executive director; eight principals; veteran central office leaders; a number of longtime support staff members; and many administrators, classroom teachers, counselors, and media specialists. Whatever their post-retirement plans, best wishes go with all of our retirees, along with our thanks for their service to Gwinnett County Public Schools.
