Dear (mention the full name of the recipient),

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,

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,

Dear (mention the full name of the recipient),

Wishing Happy Farewell to such a wonderful teacher like you is very difficult for me. After coming to know about your departure from [mention the name of the school], we are actually feeling very sad. Some of your colleagues are also in a state of shock. You have given excellent service as the special education in our school for over [mention the number of years]. It is through your support and encouragement that we could manage to run this institute as family members for their respective homes.  

I was the Principal of this school did offer you an insignificant position as a Special Education Teacher. I think a candidate like you with such an excellent academic career deserved more than this.

But you never complained or never hesitated in fulfilling your responsibilities. You always were there on time in the school from the first day of joining and never broke any rule. You had set an example for the students and the staff members of the school. You had set a good balance in the school environment by encouraging teacher and student interaction.

It actually helped the students to vent out their emotions and express their needs. It is actually helping the teacher to not only help the students but also bond well with them in form of friends, philosophers,s and guides.

I support and appreciate the ideology you believe in while educating students. It is the students cannot grow in strictness or in a closed environment. We are thinking of implementing more of a child-centered learning atmosphere as you had always desired. 

You have set a revolution in this school organization with an educative and positive mindset and that is really helping us to benefit in finding new ways of teaching the students. Like, you had always shared during the meeting with the parents.

You always advised them to take care of children with love and compassion and not with too much strictness but with little more leniency. Regarding your guidance and teaching calls, I am always flooded with appreciation calls from the parents.

I do believe that you will definitely grow in this field of education. We pray for the success and safety of your family members.

Be in touch with us! We are always there for you through the contact numbers and email ids. I am pretty sure that we will be definitely meeting again.

Never say Goodbye!

May God always take care of you!

Dear (mention the full name of the recipient),

By writing this letter I [mention the name] express my departure from [mention the name of the school] on [mention the date of departure mm-dd-yyyy] leaving the post of Substitute Teacher. I had joined this school premises on [mention the joining date mm-dd-yyyy] and I have completed [mention the number of months or years] in this school. My reason for leaving is [mention the reason for leaving].

I really do not want to go from this organization. I will be missing my classes, my students, my fellow colleagues, and all of you. But I have a lot of other responsibilities to fulfill and so I will be shifting to [mention the location].

Though this is not my first job as a substitute teacher this is the place where I got recognized as the best substitute teacher for the students. I found my colleagues very helpful and guiding me on every step of teaching the students and deal with their mental health too. 

I may have faced challenges initially to conduct the classes in the absence of the main teacher. But I owe to [mention the name of the Principal] who is the Principal of this school for the support he/she had given me to understand the lesson plan and curriculum. 

Had not been his/her support, I could not have been able to collaborate with the rest of the teachers, parents, and also the students. I am also thankful to the students to bear with me during the absenteeism of their respective teachers and taking interest in my classes too. My love and affection go to all the students of this school. They have never disobeyed me in the absence of their main teacher. 

As the days drew closer to my departure, I am getting more emotional. Tears are running out of my eyes but I still have to go. Hope to see my students achieving their aims and getting successful in my life. God bless them with a bright future and also my fellow colleagues too. Hope we meet again. This is not the end of the journey.

In any case, if you want to share anything then you can call me on [mention the contact no.] or mail at [mention email id].

Hello (mention the full name of the recipient),

I am writing this letter on behalf of every teacher, staff, and student of [mention the name of the school]. As per the record goes, you had joined on [mention the joining date] and leaving our school premises on [mention the departure date].

I am in this educational organization for quite a long time and I have found no one better than you as a substitute teacher. On the very first day of your interview with me, I could notice the passion and zeal inside you for sharing knowledge and teaching students. Many people do not have the quality like you even though they may be highly qualified.

We are really thankful for the service that you have rendered over here taking classes for the students during the absenteeism of the teachers. We were completely dependent on you. Today, we are saddened because you are departing from us.

I observed that you had taken the classes with great sincerity and with the personal touch of love and compassion for every student. You had been able to create an image unique of yourself in front of students with your teaching skills and personality. You had successfully created the interest among the students in acquiring knowledge and studying.

You have actually proved more than a substitute teacher. You always encouraged the students to participate in different co-curricular activities and games. Developing hygiene habits among kindergarten children is a quite challenging task.

You had done this very successfully. You have been cooperative and collaborative with every staff member and teacher. You also made sure that students should behave properly outside the school premises and follow traffic rules properly. This shows your concern for the reputation and image of the school.

Finding a teacher like you with a bundle of talent, knowledge and excellent presentation skills will be tough for us. We also regret that we could not offer you a better opportunity than a substitute teacher. 

Hope you will be getting a better opportunity in a far better educational institute than this. Wish you all the best in your bright teaching career. Keep in touch with us through contact numbers and email ids! You can also come any time. The gates of this school premises are always open for you. 

May God protect you and your family from all difficulties!

Thanks and Regards,
