CHAGRIN FALLS -- Kids, women, men, everywhere you looked at Gurney Elementary Friday morning all you could see was mustaches!


While it may have been Friday for you, for these students, parents and teachers it was "Mr. Q. Day!"

After 41 years of teaching Physical Education, Mr. Q. is retiring.

"I can still remember the day they hired me. It's been a blur, but it's been a great run," said Mr. Q.

Generations have been taught by Mr. Q. and in return he says teaching has kept him young.

Mr. Q. has created a lot of memories for the students, but all share one memory of his favorite catch phrase: Shake it off!

"He says it when you fall down and hurt yourself. But he's joking," said one student.

Perhaps third grader Dawson Pierce sums it up best. "He was just an awesome gym teacher and I really wish he didn't retire this year. That's all."
