Creative Writing Presentation: Letter of resignment Document Transcript

  • 1. Student Name : Mak Koon Wing Kenneth Last May, I submitted to the Principal a letter of resignation, embodying various themes across different disciplines. I think it is a creative way to ask the authority to add benefits to me. The principal then despatched the panel chair-lady to ask me to stay but I refused because of contract terms and workload. Background: Job nature: English teaching assistant Marking F.1 –5 English writing the tasks can be done at home. For some personal reason, I have to rest at home. Bargaining with seniors to take the work home. Dear Principal “Control Freak”, Sunrise follows sunset in cycles. When the light comes, darkness vanishes. My intuition leads me elsewhere for advancement, alerting me of various ways to tap into my potentiality and unleash the power within. After contemplating following closely the Tao of my innate abilities, serene dispositions and unique persona, I prefer to work freelance at home, integrating my life and work in a seamlessly holistic fashion towards an optimized performance by indulging in the so-called flow experiences, instead of staying confined to a small room, like untried inmates in a jail. Undoubtedly, ‘prison break’ is on stage now! Analogously, when the time is ripe, grapes fall off the canopy effortlessly. Sadly, I don’t think that this post allows me to more excel my work at home than languish on school premises. For some personal reasons, might I submit to you this letter of resignation, indicating that my last working day falls on 18 th May, 2009. During turbulent times especially when the financial tsunami strikes and continues to broaden and deepen, replacing the incumbent with a more capable high-caliber candidate seems a piece of cake. Hope the pinch doesn’t affect you much of locating the right one in near future. I apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate gratefully and thank you profusely for the chance once offered to me! 1
