“I would love to have you back every YEAR until i retire...”

"I want to thank you again for coming to our class and sharing such an interesting, interactive lesson. It was jam packed with history and fascinating facts, and I know the students learned so much that I couldn't have taught them. I would love to have you back every year until I retire from teaching, so let me know if you're available..."
