Dear Mr./Ms. Principal,
For personal reasons, I must take a leave of absence from teaching, effective immediately.
I would like the opportunity to say goodbye to my class and introduce them to the long-term sub who will be finishing out the year. I feel that this would be best for the children’s emotional health, as we have built close relationships in our classroom this year.
I will miss being part of the family here at the school, and hope to return when I am able.
