Sincere Retirement Gifts

Anna is retiring at King Middle School after 40 years of teaching. Her principal decides to celebrate with a group gift from illume.

He picks out a simple gift from illume’s digital marketplace, invites the other teachers to contribute with messages, photos, and more – and then hits send on the big day.
