Dear Ms. James:

I am writing this letter to inform you regarding my decision to resign from my current position as a Teacher from ABC School, District 93. My resignation will be effective from the 21st March, 2014. Although I have had a pleasurable experience at ABC School and learned a lot with from seniors, co-workers and students, but some family obligations require me to relocate immediately.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your mentoring as well as exceptional team work spirit demonstrated by my colleagues. The school’s administration has been very supportive and easy to work with. All these elements enabled me to develop a highly positive attitude towards work.

During the next two weeks, I intend to complete the planned lessons and plan to submit all student portfolios done and complete. I will do whatever I can to facilitate the transition and train my replacement. I wish the entire team a successful future.

Thank you.

Dear Sir/Madam,


Thank you so much for offering me this job. I have enjoyed every bit of my time in this company. I have learned many lessons, and I believe I am a better employee than I joined this firm. However, unfortunately, I have to leave this firm. I am relocating with my family to Chicago and so being part of this firm is not an option.

I am planning to report on 4TH Dec as the last day. During the two weeks that I shall be here, I promise to train my team members, update my files, and do any other responsibility you will request me to do. I desire that the company gets a smooth transition as I leave.

Feel free to engage me in any way for the two weeks and even after I have left. I have updated my details in my files. If there be an opportunity in Chicago, do not hesitate to offer me the chance. I appreciate you for the privileges that you have accorded me during my stay here.

Thank you

Sincerely Rollan”
