Positive ResignationWhen you must “move on” to accept new opportunities, use this sample to guide the draft of your resignation. It can be very brief; basically providing a formal notice for documentation purposes. Or, it may provide an explanation. Employers appreciate understanding the situation.

With deep regret and some excitement I must resign as an English teacher, effective December 1, 2010. My family will be relocating to New York. My husband was offered a great job in a prestigious law firm. This is an opportunity we cannot overlook.
I will be glad in the training of my replacement. Our school has a couple of very loyal and competent teachers who would be excellent in that role.
Thank for those beautiful and successful years . I will miss the school and colleagues. Ross, your leadership provides me with many warm memories. I wish you all the best.
