RE: Resigning from Post of Teacher

Dear Mrs McGonagall,

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from the post of high school science teacher at Minton High School. Please accept this letter as 3 months’ notice as stipulated in the contract.

I want to make a change in my career by switching over to teaching college students at the graduate level. To this end, I have enrolled for a PhD in botany. As you are well aware this entails a lot of research and paper presentation which I will not be able to do with a full time job.

I joined Minton High on 21st March 2005, and the 8 years I taught here have been very fulfilling, and I have gained much wisdom from my colleagues and my students as well.

As the Board which has to approve the resignation meets in August, I shall continue with my teaching responsibilities for grades 8, 9, and 10 till 30th September 2013 which will be my last working day.

I take this opportunity to thank you, the School Board, and my fellow teachers for all the support given to me during my tenure.

Thanking you

Yours truly

Alfred Flitwick

Dear Headmaster

RE: Resigning from Post of Teacher

I am writing to inform you on my decision to be released from my teaching position at Melrose Secondary School with effect from January 1st 2011, giving more than the stipulated 3 months’ notice as per my teaching contract.

The reason for my resignation is that I have decided to pursue my Masters degree in Education at the prestigious National University, whose course term commences in mid January 2011. It will be a 2 year full time studies for me which upon graduation, will open more education-related opportunities for my career.

As my resignation would require the approval of the school Board which only meets in December, I shall continue with my teaching responsibilities until then.

I thank you for your support extended to me while serving this school and I appreciate your kind understanding on my request.

Yours Truly,
