My Resignation Letter

Here is my resignation letter... what do you think?


Dear "Bosses,"

The time has come for me to move into a different stage of my professional life. Thank you for the opportunities for professional and personal development that you have provided me during the last 3 1/2 years. My time at *** provided me with a chance to learn from the other great teachers within the school and the opportunity to teach such wonderful children.

I have really enjoyed working for both of you over the years and this is why it was an extremely hard decision for me to make. I find myself in a position where I must move on to be able to grow both personally and professionally. Friday, December 19, 2008 will be my last day as your Kindergarten Teacher.


Please understand that if there was more time for me to stay, I would. Unfortunately the offer was made, and had to be accepted with a January 2009 start date.

I wish you both continued success and good fortune with *** School. I trust that I will embark on this next stage of my career with your blessing, and well wishes. I hope that I may have the pleasure to work with you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Dana

Sounds good to me! Not sure if you are under contract but if you are is there a resignation clause? My contract has one and I am required to give my employer 35 day notice for them to release me. Good luck with your new job!

Lori said...

that works... you could always offer to meet with your replacement to discuss the children in your class

Are you serious?!?!

If we did that...broke a contract, we'd never be able to teach again. We'd lose our lisence

Sounds nice to me. If there are no contract breaking issues I think you're good to go.
