Dear Ms. Johnson,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. The reason I am writing this letter is to send you my best wishes for your retirement.

Recently, I learned from one of my former classmates about your retirement. When I contacted the school principle to verify the news, he told me that you have decided to retire after thirty successful years of teaching.

While I understand your decision to retire, it will be a great loss for all the students. Throughout all my high school years, I never met a teacher as patient and resourceful as you. You always answered all our questions in detail no matter how simple they were. You also explained all the seemingly impossible-to-understand mathematical concepts, such as integrals, in such a clear way, that no one felt left behind.

Such a wonderful characteristic helped me and many others to be successful in our careers. In other words, you taught us to be passionate about what we do for a living and strive to learn new things all the time. As a result, I am now a self-made business owner with over fifty employees in my firm. This would not have been possible if I had been uninterested in my job or impatient in life.

Once again, thank you for the enduring impact you have had on my life, and congratulations on your retirement.

Kind regards,

John Smith
