Teaching Assistants may resign for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: feeling overwhelmed or overworked; inadequate pay or benefits; lack of professional development opportunities; difficulty balancing teaching responsibilities with other commitments (academic, family, etc.); conflicts with faculty members and/or students; boredom or burnout due to monotonous tasks; dissatisfaction with the institution’s policies and procedures.
Writing a TA resignation letter can be challenging because it is important to ensure that the tone of the letter is respectful and professional. It should also provide enough detail about why you are leaving, but not too much so as to avoid any potential legal issues. Additionally, it may be difficult to express gratitude for your time in the position while still making clear that you have decided to move on. Finally, depending on the situation, there may be complex emotions involved in writing this type of letter which can make it difficult to craft an appropriate message.
