Dear Sara I have made the decision to hand in my notice, I am currently off sick with stress and depression. My problem is that the school don't know I want to hand in my notice and no matter how much i told them I was not coping I was offered no help. Do I just send in my letter of resignation while being off sick and wait for their response? Or should I arrange to go in and have a meeting in which I hand in my notice? What is the proper way of dealing with such situations? Also should I make out that the problem is only with me in order to get a better reference or should I be honest and explain that I feel that the school has failed me in many ways? Hope you can help, I am really worried about this.
