Don’t say anything that they can use to make you look uncooperative. Your new job WILL call for references. Saying the principal was unsupportive, saying other coworkers had opportunities that you didn’t, makes you sound bitter and petty. Not good for future jobs. Just the basics. I am writing to inform you of my resignation. Effective on bla bla bla day. I am happy to provide a 2 day hand-over to my replacement.

I did this a few years ago in my old district. Be very concise, and do not go into too much. Just state facts. Also, my district required 30 days notice and required HR and the principal received the resignation letter. In mine I just stated I felt itbwas not being given the same opportunities as the others in my school and was not supported as a dual language teacher so I was moving on to use my bilingual skills in another job after numerous attempts to please my principal. I left because I had a very unsupportive principal. She was always in my room and was always finding reasons to call me to her office. I just got sick of it because there was two teacher there who used every sick day, never left sub plans and always had their classes running and screaming in the hallways and she never did a single thing to them. I still to this day firmly believe it was because I did not kiss her backside and go shoe shopping to Saturday wine tastings and lunches with her. Good luck!

This also happens when a new principal comes in and brings his favorites with him to his new position. I see a lot of this at my current district. From the top all the way to the campus level. Now, I love where I teach; amazing and respectful students. However, every school that I’ve ever been has this issue. I taught in my hometown for a while, the power clique from their graduating class remained together as college kids then teachers. Two are now assistant principals at that school, one is an instructional leader, and the last one is a department chair. So glad we moved from there! 😡🤢😡

This was mine: “Please accept this as formal notification that I am resigning my position as Teacher in Fowler Unified as of July 31st. It has truly been amazing working at Sutter for the last 11 years and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything, but it is time for me to move on. I wish you all the best, I know you will have a great school year.” I sent it to my principal, VP and Supt. I am in a very small district so that list may look different for you depending on your district.

Just got an offer from Deloitte, but with a pretty significant pay cut. Is Deloitte worth it? Will end of year bonuses make up the difference? Any advice is appreciated - prestige, culture, etc.
