I will be resigning my current teaching position next week, and I was wondering what usual protocol is when it comes to writing resignation letters to your principal. According to the district policies, I have to write a letter of resignation and deliver it to my superintendent, but it doesn't say anything about my principal. I was intending to just meet with him and inform him of my decision verbally. Do you think this is okay? Or should I write him a letter? (Or both?) We have a relatively close working relationship in that I see him multiple times per day and the school is very small. What do you think? I won't be leaving until the end of the school year (June), and of course I am planning to write him a thank you card, etc. before I leave. I've never officially resigned from a full time position before, so I'm not sure about the protocol. Thanks!
