Dear Mrs. Jeanette,

 This letter intends to inform you that I will be resigning from my position as a history teacher in Highbury High School, effective in three weeks from this day, specifically on January 23, 2019. As you may know, my family and I will soon move out to another town in Beverly Hills. This will make it impossible for me to continue working as a teacher at Highbury High School, so I plan to look for a new teaching position there.

Teaching the history in Highbury High School has given me the greatest pleasure over the past four years. Moreover, working with the students and all of my colleagues at Highbury High School was fun and I am grateful that I have met such wonderful and lovely people there. Besides, the valuable experience and lessons that I gained during work as a teacher there will be impossible to be forgotten. So, I wish for the success of all students and my colleagues in the future. If you need to contact me for further information and talking about my transition to train a new teacher that will fill my position, I will always ready, so do not hesitate to contact me at 454-3333-8888 or mail me at Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation regarding my resignation letter.
