Recently resigned - advice on applying for new post

    I'm a teacher with over 10 years experience but I've recently had a bad experience in a school and decided to resign. It was definitely the right decision for me, although not an easy one! My question is about applying for new teaching posts. I was only in my most recent job for a short time and once I resigned they advertised and filled the position so that I could leave at half term. Previous to this I had worked another school since qualifying (over 10 years). I know that I will need to put both of my previous head teachers down for references, but I was wondering what I could possible put in a letter of application to explain why I wasn't at the last school for very long. I'm also not sure what type of reference they are likely to give me. Any advice would be very helpful.
