Resigning from a teaching job is not easy due to the affiliation a teacher develops with the institution and students and it is even more difficult if the teaching position is in the field of special education. Whatever the reason may be, if you need to resign from a special education teacher position, make sure that you give an ample notice period as per the institution’s policy and leave on good terms with your employers.
Resignation letter is typically a short letter that simply states your date of resignation and very briefly mentions the reason of resigning along with your regret for having to leave. The last paragraph is generally reserved for special thanks. Putting in a few good words about the management and stating how grateful you are for the experience you have gained.
Even if you are resigning because of some workplace conflict, do not mention it in your resignation letter; focus on the positives of your job instead.
