Teacher Resignation Letter

When you decide to leave your teaching position, to formally let your employer know that you're leaving, you'll usually need to write a resignation letter.

If the letter is being sent as a hard copy, then it should be in the proper business format, otherwise, if the letter is being emailed, it should have an appropriate subject line and proper grammar.

How to Write
  1. State that you're leaving and the effective date of your resignation.
  2. Let your employer know the reason you're leaving. (optional)
  3. Offer to help with the transition for your replacement. (optional)
  4. Thank your employer for the opportunity to teach at the school.
