How Do You Quit A Teaching Job?
It is proper protocol to quit a teaching job via a letter of resignation that states your intention to leave your position and provides the school with details about when you plan to leave and why you are choosing to quit. It is also appropriate to inform your students that you are quitting your teaching job, particularly if you are leaving in the middle of the school year. Give adequate notice. Unless you are quitting your teaching job due to a serious illness or other emergency that impairs your ability to do your job, make sure that you give your school two to four weeks notice before leaving. If possible, make your resignation coincide with the end of the school year, semester, or marking period. Review your contract. Before you quit your teaching job, look over the terms of the employment contract that you signed when you accepted the position. Breaching your contract may result in forfeiture of pay and benefits. Although it is rare, your school may also request monetary damages t
