Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

It greatly saddens me to send you this letter of resignation. Effective the end of this month, I will no longer be working here as a P.E. Teacher. 

Recently I have been noticing some changes in many aspects of my life, both personally and professionally. I have been overly exhausted, constantly in pain, and feel that my productivity has been cut in half.

I went to a doctor and I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a condition that involves chronic pain and soreness.

Because of the high activity level consistent with my work, I am no longer able effectively to teach my students, and I do not want them to be affected by this. My doctor agreed with me that this is the best decision for all involved. 

I have so enjoyed my time here at FMA Middle School. I found my work to be enjoyable, and I will never forget the last 20 years of incredible friends and colleagues that I have gained.

I hope we will still stay in touch despite my early exit.

Please let me know if there is any way I can help in finding my replacement. Although I can no longer do the work I once could, I hope to still be a resource and that we will stay in touch. Thank you so much for all the opportunities, and I wish everyone at FMA the very best.

Sincerely,

Your Signature (hard copy letter)
