Resigning from a teaching job can be painful because of your emotional attachment with the institution and students. But at some stage in your career you may need to resign from your current position due to domestic affairs, study or a better opportunity. Be sure to follow district procedures when resigning from a position. Give adequate notice. The typical notice period for teaching jobs is 2 to 4 weeks, though, check with your employee manual to verify school expectations. Your letter is supposed to be brief and factual.

Nashville High School

Dear Mr. Rich:

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from the position of a Math Teacher from Nashville High School. Please consider this a formal thirty day notice as October 28, 2012 will be my last working day.

Although I have enjoyed working with Nashville High School immensely, I cannot continue because of my other educational commitments. I have been offered a place at the Boston University in a post graduate program and will need to move to Massachusetts by the end of October. I must say that I have enjoyed every moment that I have spent working for Nashville High School and will miss my students very much. Had I another choice, I wouldn’t have left but this opportunity is a dream come true.

Thank you very much for the opportunities for professional and personal development that you have provided me throughout my tenure AT Nashville High School. I still want to be associated with the school and will keep in touch throughout my time at university. I wish the entire staff every success with their future endeavors.


Truly yours,

Rachel Albert
