North Avenue Preschool

Dear Mr. Santos,

I’m writing to you to confirm my reduction in hours from full-time to part-time status as a preschool teacher at North Avenue Preschool. Ideally, I would like to switch from the all-day preschool classes to only teaching my morning class. I’m planning on making January 3, 2023, my last day as a full-time teacher and beginning my part-time teaching hours on January 4, 2023.

The decision to reduce my hours is because I’m returning to school to pursue my master’s degree in education. My coursework is going to be heavy and working part-time can allow me to focus on my studies while still teaching my class. During my full-time experience, I’ve been able to accomplish some tasks that I’ve taken pride in, such as helping grow my children’s self-esteem and confidence in completing new tasks. It’s gratifying to watch how a child in my class has improved drastically from the beginning of the year to the end.

You may find reducing my hours to part-time status may benefit the school and the children while still producing quality work performance. For example, you may find it beneficial because I can give better attention and focus to my class if I have fewer hours as I won’t be as overwhelmed trying to earn my degree and work full time.

I want to express my gratitude for the full-time opportunity you’ve given me the last five years. I appreciate all this school has done for me so far and all the skills I’ve learned. I’m also excited to continue working on my projects and goals at my part-time status.

Thank you for considering my request and I look forward to following up with you about this.

“Dear Ms. Sargent,

I just wanted to confirm my resignation from my fulltime sales position at ABC Company in order to switch to part time hours. Since I am currently going back to university, my schedule only allows for me to work part time hours. My last day as a fulltime employee will be May 8, 2014 and at that time I will begin the part time schedule. I greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation with me during this time.

I am truly sorry for any inconvenience that may result from this situation. During my last week on the fulltime schedule, I will of course work as hard as always, and put forth every effort on my part time schedule. If there is anything else I can do, I would be happy to assist. If any clarification is needed in this matter, please feel free to contact me via phone at (555)-555-5555 or email at [email] and I will get back with you immediately.

I am very thankful for the ability to continue working at ABC Company with reduced hours, as this will allow me to tend to my schooling simultaneously. I look forward to seeing what the future holds with this position. This job has provided me with some excellent experience which I will always be grateful for, as I am to you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Elisabeth L. Snider

“Dear Bob,

Please accept this letter as my two weeks’ notice of my change in employment status. As we have discussed, I am transitioning from my position as a full-time marketing manager to my new role as a part-time marketing specialist at SocialCo. It is the right time in my life to decrease my work responsibilities, spend more time with my newborn daughter, and focus on my family. This change will also allow a new manager to lead my team in pursuing its goals. My last day as a full-time employee will be Thursday, October 12, 2017.

To help with the transition, I plan to serve as an advisor and mentor to my associates, train my replacement, and meet with the human resources team. If any concerns arise, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at or (888) 555-4321. I am available to answer questions or provide further information.

Finally, let me say that I have enjoyed my position and experiences with the company and am very grateful to have the opportunity to remain in this reduced capacity until I am ready to return to full-time hours.
