“Hello (mention the full name of the recipient),

I am taking this as an opportunity to disclose my departure from [mention the name of the school]. I will be moving from this place on [mention the date of departure] due to [mention the reason for leaving]. I am feeling sad at this moment.

I will be missing all the colleagues, students, and [mention the name of the Principal] who is the Principal of this school.  Over the years we all have worked together just like a family in making efforts to provide education and inculcate values in every student in the best possible way. 

I will forever remain obliged to you [addressing the Principal]. Sir, it is you who had given me this opportunity to join as a special education teacher. I never felt that I was new from the very first day and never felt the discomfort or nervousness of taking classes in the senior section on that first day.

It was because of the unbelievable and unconditional support I got from the senior teachers. Without their encouragement, I could not have conducted long hours of teaching to the students. 

The students had been always respectful towards and always paid attention to my teaching. I always encouraged group discussion on different topics based on current events. Actually, I believe that the child cannot grow in so much strictness or rules and regulations. I always want my student to not only excel in academics but also stand for their rights and be righteous in life. 

Finally, I just have to say that I will never get such a beautiful school environment anywhere. It is really getting hard from my side to take leave of all of you. 

I will never be far from you. You can contact me through my contact number [mention the contact no.] and also through my email id [mention email id]. I repeat my thank you for all of you bearing me for all these years/months and sharing wonderful moments.

God bless you and your families!

Be safe!

With Warm Regards,

Thanking You,”

Through this letter, I would like to inform you that I will be leaving my position as a [mention the position] on [mention date] from the school [mention name of School]. I have always tried to serve here through the best of my knowledge and skills till the last day of my work.

Recently I have been noticing some changes in my life, both personally and professionally so that is why I had to take this decision prior to my retrial period. I have so enjoyed my time here since my work has given me great satisfaction which I will never forget in the future.

I also got a bunch of good colleagues with whom I have shared the most memorable moments of my career life. I think that choosing teaching as a career is by far the best decision of my life until and unless I got hired by this company.

The environment was so positive and energetic here that it automatically has helped me to boost up my level of confidence. Moreover, I would also like to thank my seniors for helping me out in my sessions thereby supporting me throughout my tenure period.

Throughout this time here, I got to know about my responsibilities more which includes creating lesson plans, tracking their progress on a daily basis, offer extra lessons to struggling students, and ensuring that every student gets equal and fair treatment so that it can create a benchmark for my juniors or even outside this sector.

I also have encouraged students to continue their studies even during their recession period. In this way, it will help them and their parents to keep themselves updated about current affairs and situations.

Thus I believe that I have given my best and have served the company more than my capabilities and it would not have been possible without the support I have achieved from here so a big thank you for that. I promise to be in touch with the school and the friends I have made here. Thank you once again.

Best Regards,

[Mention your name]”
