April 7, 2015

Mr. Richard Rich
Nashville High School
9902 Franklin Street
Evanston, IL 77363


Dear Mr. Rich:

This letter is a formal resignation from my position of Teacher from Nashville High School. Please consider this a one week notice of my leaving this job i.e. April 14, 2015 will be my last working day.

Due to some domestic affair, it is becoming exceedingly difficult for me to take care of my children and manage office work at the same time. It makes me very sad to leave the place that I have been working for more than three years. What Nashville High School gave me in terms of experience and confidence, no other workplace could possibly will. I have had the opportunity to learn from my peers and my students equally and I am confident that I made some difference to their lives at some point too.

I intend to hand over all my work responsibilities to whomever you choose to replace me within the next few working days and will start the procedure immediately. I appreciate you understanding my limitations and trust that you will take kindly to it. Thank you for being such an important part of my life and you will remain so.


Truly yours,

Cynthia Armadillo
