Sample resignation letter for kindergarten teachers

A sample resignation letter for kindergarten teachers can also be useful for elementary teachers or any other teaching assistant job role at a school.

You may feel nostalgic for the fact that you won’t be able to teach in the same classroom or to the same students anymore but you may have been feeling excited about a new job opportunity or a shift in your career path.

However, consider how when a teaching contract is signed, both parties expect to continue their agreement for an entire academic year.

As Candace Alstad from “schools hate to lose teachers mid-year because it disrupts the students’ educational experience and decreases academic progress. Although this is something that schools don’t like, it does happen.”

When writing your formal resignation letter, try to keep it brief and straight to the point, state the fact you are leaving, and when (i.e. 2 weeks’ notice).

Make sure you include your name and contact information and you could include (briefly) the reason why you are leaving.

You could also add some highlights of your time working for them and thank them for the opportunity.

“Dear Dr. Nyland,

This letter is to inform you that effective 6/1/2018, I will be resigning from my position as 3rd Grade Teacher at South Shore Elementary School.

My time here has been a wonderful experience and the students at South Shore Elementary School are second to none. However, after careful thought and consideration my two hour commute time is too cumbersome for me to continue. The school and school district itself is simply too far for me to have a positive work-life balance.

Thank you for the positive support you have provided during my 30-year tenure and I wish you along with the rest of the teachers all of the best. Please forward any outstanding Tax and Retirement information to the address above, along with any additional monies due to me as well.

Dear Mr./Ms. Lastname:

It greatly saddens me to send you this letter of resignation. Effective the end of this month, I no longer will be working here as a P.E. teacher.

Recently I have been noticing some changes in many aspects of my life, both personally and professionally. I have been overly exhausted, constantly in pain, and feel that my productivity has been cut in half. I went to a doctor, and I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a condition that involves chronic pain and soreness. 

Because of the high activity level consistent with my work, I am no longer able to teach my students effectively, and I do not want them to be impacted by this. My doctor agreed with me that this is the best decision for all involved.

I have so enjoyed my time here at FMA Middle School. My work gave me great satisfaction, and I never will forget the last 20 years of incredible friends and colleagues that I have gained. I hope we will still stay in touch despite my early exit.

Please let me know if there is any way I can help in finding my replacement. Although I no longer can do the work I once could, I hope to remain a resource and that we will stay in touch. Thank you so much for all the opportunities, and I wish everyone at FMA the very best.
