A teacher is a professional who is also known as lecturer or instructor who teaches students in schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutes. Teachers usually work in schools where the professors and lecturers teach in colleges and universities. Unlike most of other professions, teaching is supposed to be one of the best and most noble professions as there is nothing better than learning education and teaching it to others. Teachers are hired on all levels of education including pre-school, primary school, secondary school, high school, graduation school and for master’s level education in universities.

When we talk about why a teacher wants to quit his or her job, there can be many reasons but most of the time, it is because they want to study further in their selected subject and as they study, they can’t focus on teaching and thus, they have to resign from their job. When a teacher wants to study further after a while, he mostly informs his employer about his future intentions so that when he actually decides to resign, it won’t be a problem for the employer or head of the educational institute. Another reason for resigning from teaching job is because there is a better job in a better facility i.e. college or university and the teacher who is resigning wants to move to that position.

There are many things that a teacher is required to take care and consider before resigning from his or her job. First and most important thing is to discuss the decision of resigning with the employer before announcing it in the school or college and once the employer agrees and accepts the decision, then the teacher is asked to write a formal resignation letter. Another important thing for the teachers is try not to resign in the middle of an educational session i.e. resign at the end of the year when students are passed to next class.

Dear (Recipient’s name),

I am writing this formal resignation letter to inform you that I have decided to resign from my job at this school as UCLA has accepted my job application and I am hired there as assistant senior professor for English. Consider this letter as my final resignation along with 2 week notice period.

Even if I already discussed my intentions with you, it is still a little awkward to inform you about my decision but I have to think what’s best for me and how can I move to a better position in my career. I am very happy that I got accepted in UCLA but I am also very sad at the same time because now I have to leave this school but mostly because I won’t be working with you anymore.

I want to tell you that you are my personal favorite employer and I hope that my next administrator is as good and kind as you. Kindly accept my resignation and arrange for my last paycheck before I leave on the 30th of this month.

Yours faithful,

Employee’s name:
