I taught school for 30 years and at the end of each school year and the buses had left the parking lot, we always played the Hallelujah song over the intercom.

What a coincidence! That's the same song I played every September when the bus came back to my house! :D

Walkien, I haven't heard it in years but would the theme song from the movie "To Sir, With Love" be suitable? I don't remember the lyrics but seems like it was about the influence the teacher had on the pupils.

How about "My Wish" from Rascal Flatts?

One of my favorite "Teacher" songs has always been "Teacher" by Jethro Tull. You can hear it here and see the lyrics:

Depending on how serious you want the show to be, you could also use "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen but that could be stretch....... :D
We skipped the light fandango, turned cartwheels 'cross the floor.
I was feeling kinda seasick, but the crowd called out for more...........

Hi
I haven't been on the forum for a while and just saw your post. I am a teacher and we had a teacher who just retired. I did a short slideshow with a video and the song that I found that was great was called: Goodbye my friend
Here is the link with a copy of the words and a good potion of the song sample. Hope this helps and it's not too late:

I retired last year and took images made of everyone at the retirement luncheon and made a flipbook set to the song "Thanks for the Memories" and e-mailed it to my school as a thank-you.
