Dear TSA Parents, Guardians and Alumni,
Of all the letters I’ve written in my 19 years at TSA this may be the most significant. It is very important that you receive this information from me directly. You have all made such an enormous difference in my life – I will be forever grateful.
I will be retiring as the Head of School at The Sharon Academy at the end of June, 2020. (Not this June.)
This is a step I have been considering for some time but much more actively and with the support of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees for the last two years. It’s a decision that both makes a lot of sense to me and is enormously difficult at the same time.
I began the important work of designing an authentic distributed leadership model for the school in 2004. Over the course of the last few years it has become quite apparent to me that the natural and beautiful extension of that successful work is for me to create some space for the school to continue to grow, change, and evolve. Good teaching is as much about knowing when to get out of the way as it is about instruction. It’s time for me to get out of the way. It may be the most important gift a leader can share with those he loves so much and cares for so deeply.
The work we undertake as a school community is enormously important to me. I can’t imagine being more proud and deeply satisfied in any other circumstance. There is no more important work than taking care of our children. I reminded our faculty and staff today that they do it with intelligence, dignity, good humor, great energy and a willingness to reassess and reevaluate that are the hallmarks of a great school.
There is no question in my mind that the culture of our school is deeply ingrained in our collective DNA. It does not, and cannot, reside in one person. I am extremely confident that the school will do much more than just maintain a sense of itself. It will continue to grow and evolve as it must. The world is changing at an astonishing rate and so are our learners. We need to stay alert to those changes and be both flexible and creative in our problem-solving as we move forward.
The Board of Trustees has been crafting a careful and thoughtful process that will involve faculty and staff as well as student and parent input. The transition team is being considered as we speak and it’s important for you to know that it will have broad representation. Please know your voices will be heard.
Press releases have gone out to Vermont Digger, the Valley News, the Vermont Standard in Woodstock and the Herald in Randolph. The faculty and staff have been informed and I had a chance to speak with the students today. This information is officially public.
I have been blessed, beyond measure, to have had an opportunity to work with all of you. I am staggered, on a regular basis, when I consider the number of circumstances that came together simultaneously to guide me to TSA.
It’s important for me to tell you that this transition is entirely of my own consideration. My relationship with the Board has been and remains remarkably positive. There are no outstanding problems or issues. I have no other job prospects or even interests. I have learned to trust my intuition even when I have very little data to support it. When I fail to trust it, I regret it. My intuition tells me now is the right time.
You don’t need to say anything to me or do anything for me except to continue to help us support the students in whatever manner you can.
Please remember this is a normal and very healthy circumstance. The school is in a very positive position. If I felt otherwise I wouldn’t be taking these steps.
We have much good work to do and I look forward to every day of my remaining 18 months as the Head of School. TSA will always be important to me. I hope to find other ways to help support the students, the new head of school, and the school’s ongoing success.
Thank you for your unfailing support of our learning community. You make a real difference.

Dear [INSERT MANAGER’S NAME],
Please accept this letter as notice of my retirement from the position of [INSERT JOB TITLE] at [INSERT COMPANY].
I have enjoyed my [INSERT TIME YOU HAVE WORKED AT THE COMPANY] with the business immensely and have had great satisfaction in taking on the challenges given to me. I have learnt many things, made many friends, and have many memories that will stay with me forever.
As per the terms of my employment contract, I will continue to work for the company for the next [INSERT NOTICE PERIOD LENGTH], completing my employment on [INSERT LAST DAY YOU INTEND TO WORK]. If there are any areas in particular you would like me to focus on during my notice period, please let me know.
I am thankful for the opportunities you have given me during my time here. Whilst thoroughly looking forward to my retirement, I will miss working with you a great deal and I hope we can stay in touch.
I wish you all the best in your future endeavors
Dear Colleagues at ZenAir Incorporated:
Today I want to thank everyone for their contributions to the success of ZenAir during my tenure here. In extraordinarily complex and challenging times you have helped the company achieve excellent financial results for our shareholders. What's more, you have served ZenAir's customers like none of our competitors have been able to do.
Today, ZenAir is better and stronger than ever to withstand whatever comes our way from harsh economic times and from our competition. We have tremendous associates, a strong and cohesive management team, solid financial resources, a clear strategic direction, and brand recognition second to none.
As long as everyone continues to contribute with the same passion and tenacity as when I worked here, ZenAir is exceptionally well-positioned for the future and will continue to .be first choice of premium customers willing to pay for exceptional service.
Now I want to share with you my personal plans. I revealed not so long ago that one day in the not-too-distant future I'd step down as president of ZenAir, but stay on in some capacity at the company.
After I read the Quintessential Careers Review of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free, I purchased this wonderful retirement book by Ernie J. Zelinski.
After reading the book, I realized that my retirement time is now.
Therefore, effective at the end of the year, I plan to retire as ZenAir's president. I will, however, continue to be a consultant to the chairman, the Board of Directors, and the new president on an ongoing basis.
I look forward to the opportunity to still serve this wonderful company, although I admit it is in good hands and can do very well without any contributions from me in the future. No doubt ZenAir in the hands of our chairman and the senior executive team would do well even if I moved to Mars.
Finally, I would like everyone at the company to know how pleased I am to have had the opportunity to lead ZenAir for the past 15 years.
Many thanks to all of you again. It has been a privilege to work with you and a memory I will always cherish.
As always, my very best wishes to everyone.

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:
I would like to inform you that I am officially resigning from my faculty position at Coronado College, effective May 15th, 2019. Working here has been such a wonderful experience, and I will cherish the memories forever.
Life is fleeting, so I have decided to retire and leave the workforce so I can enjoy watching my grandchildren grow up. I have worked at Coronado College for over 20 years, and although those were some of the best years of my life, I am looking forward to the next chapter.
I want to personally thank you for the many opportunities you have given me over the years. I have grown personally and professionally, and am very pleased with the work I have done, the students I have been privileged to work with, and the departmental and institutional changes I have helped to effect. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with my coworkers and superiors, and I do hope that we will all keep in touch.
If I can be of any help during this transitional time, please let me know. Thank you again for your understanding, and I wish you all the best.
