Teacher Resignation Letter Example

If you are a Teacher but you have found a new job and want to resign from your position then you need to think carefully about your reasons for this and also what this means in terms of your teaching career, your notice period, the role itself etc.

As a Teacher you will also have your pupils to think about and the trust that they have put in you, they will probably feel very saddened to hear that you are leaving and you may need as part of your notice period if possible to introduce a new teacher to the pupils and integrate this carefully.
Before any of this though, you need to be able to set out your particulars in writing, please see the below example resignation letter.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Resignation from my position of SUBJECT Teacher

Please accept this letter as my resignation from the position of SUBJECT Teacher. I have decided to resign from my position as I feel that my skills have been challenged to their limits in my current role and I feel that it is time that I experienced something new and have found a different teaching role I would like to pursue.

I will of course be very sad to say goodbye to SCHOOL NAME and all the pupils I have taught, the teachers and colleagues that I have worked with. I feel that I have been given an excellent opportunity working for SCHOOL NAME under your guidance as a Head Teacher and for that I am eternally grateful.

In accordance with my terms and conditions of employment, my last working day will be DATE (maybe you may make it the end of the half term or term depending on the circumstances and of course your contract).

I would be grateful if you could forward me my P45 and any outstanding monies including holiday pay at the end of my contract.

Thank you again for the experience that you have given me, I am very grateful.
Best Wishes for the future.

Yours sincerely
