Sample 1:

“Dear Amazing Students,

It is to inform you that I am resigning from the position of ________, with the resignation effective from _______.

Believe it or not, I really appreciated my time with you this year. You are a curious and passionate bunch who are aware of the many issues that plague the world, and want to do something about it. I feel that with focus, discipline and sustained effort no matter the challenges, you will have what you need in order to be great leaders at school and in your communities.

If there is one thing I hope you walked away with this year, it’s the fact that you matter, you are powerful and you have the ability to improve society. I hope that you recognize your greatness, that you have deep self love and confidence in yourself, that you know the only person you should compete with is you.

I also want you to remember that kindness matters. This is not a concept that society pushes on young people. The media pushes you violence, fear and division, it makes coming at each other humorous and entertaining. But we have to get into the habit of building each other up. We have to work hard to counteract all the negative imagery we see about ourselves by being kind and supportive of each other, by congratulating each other and pushing each other towards positive goals. Love each other.

Remember to take a deep breath or two or ten when you need to center yourself. Remember our affirmations and create some of your own to get you focused, grounded and through each day. You are indeed made of love, hope and joy and it is my aspiration that you let that shine through you to others. I know I haven’t been the sweetest these last few weeks as I’ve attempted to prepare you for finals, but over the course of the year I’ve tried to model compassion and understanding. I hope you recognized that. I hope it rubbed off on you.

I love each and every one of you, even the ones that came to class late or barely showed at all, even the ones whose phones I had to collect and whose language I had to check, even the ones that didn’t do any homework or I glared at for talking while I was talking, even the ones whose parents I had to text during class, and even you sleepy heads. Yes, I love you all.

I can’t explain how much I enjoyed hearing your thoughts, your ponderings, and your passion in class. You will be the ones to change things because ya’ll don’t take no mess! Thank you for your honesty, support, and flexibility. Thank you for being yourselves. There were so many days I came to school stressed about something personal, but spending time with you made me forget about it all. I appreciate your travelling advice and will do my best to not get killed, or kidnapped, or lost and will work to stay in the moment, learn new things, be open to opportunities that arise, and not stress.

Thank you for growing with me and allowing me to grow with you. I will miss you and hope to see you when you are mature and developed juniors. I send you all the love, prayers and good vibes. See you in 2018.

“Dear Students,

I am resigning from the position of chemistry teacher due to personal reasons. I apologize for such a short notice period which otherwise wouldn’t have happened.

My wish for you is that you see the light in this world, in yourself, and in

others. I see the light in you.

Compliment others, and be proud of your own accomplishments. I am proud of you.

Believe in yourself, for you are stronger than you know. I believe in you.

Try hard, but know your limits. Ask if you need help, and trust others will help you. I will help you.

Fill your heart with laughter and smile often. I love to see your smile.

You are a unique, special, and amazing person. There will never be another you. I appreciate all of you.

Dream, believe, wonder, inspire, love, nurture, and always listen. That is what I will do for you.


Your Teacher”

Sample 3:

My students,

It is with great sadness that I must inform you of my formal resignation from my position as a teacher with Parkland Kindergarten School. This departure comes due to personal problems that I don’t wish to share but are beyond my control and require my immediate attention.

I know these last few weeks haven’t been easy. There are so many expectations and much excitement over the end of the school year. I know I’m a little more easily frustrated this time of year and I can seem more difficult to please. I know you are feeling a bit more wiggly as you become filled with anticipation over the fast-approaching summer, but I want you to know something.

I want you to know that as we embrace the blur of awards ceremonies and report cards that this time of year brings, I’m feeling a bit bittersweet. 

I look at you and realize you aren’t the same kids that I welcomed into my classroom last year. You’re all a couple inches taller. You have a different haircut. Your style has changed a little as you’ve grown into yourself a tad bit more. 

I think of how you’ve learned. You’re reading at a higher grade level and you can speak with a confidence you didn’t possess in August. You’re not that same kid I met; you’re different, and that simultaneously breaks my heart and comforts me.

“Dear Amazing Students,

It is to inform you that I am resigning from the position of teaching, with the resignation effective from 1st May 2022.

You see, I’m looking forward to this summer as much as any of you. I’ve dreamed about my alone time and I’ve wished time away. I’m proud of the job I’ve done when I realize the kids you’ve become, but I can’t help but wonder if I did enough. Could I have done more? Did I prepare you for the road ahead? Did I give it my all?

And mostly, I did. I had cloudy moments where my vision was blurred by stress from too many papers to grade and too many conferences to conduct, but I always cared. Always. And I hope you always felt that. 

I hope you always knew that I cared; more than you learned how to write a thesis statement and more than you know how to write a coherent essay. Of course, I hope that I prepared you for what’s ahead and made your transition to the next grade easier, but I could live with not being the best essay-grader or the coolest lesson-giver. I hope, more than anything, that I’m the teacher that prepared your heart. I hope I’m the teacher who helped you handle rejection with grace. I want to be the teacher who was firm but kind. I hope I was the role model you needed.

Today, it’s hard to say goodbye. It’s an adjustment to go from welcoming your face at my classroom door each morning to wondering how you’re doing years later. It’s difficult to go from being your safe place to someone you see occasionally in a hallway. 

I know I am *just* your teacher, but we’ve spent five days a week together for the last ten months and change is never easy. I hope you’ll remember me. I hope my discipline made you stronger. I hope my kindness made you feel safe. I hope that my classroom was a place that you learned many things and made many friends; I hope it was a place you genuinely like to be. While I’m a little sad to welcome a whole new group next year instead of continue to know you more, I’ll think of you succeeding where you are. I’ll think of how you’ve grown and how you’ll continue to do so. And I’ll not only think of how much you’ve learned but also how much you’ve taught me as we’ve grown.
