Since you have fired my assistant who just lead your middle school band to win Honor Band it is apparent you want to "go another direction" with the band program. The reason you gave for her firing was that kids were taking band to serious. I realize you're intention was to "clean house" and I'll grant your wish. Consider this my resignation and my recommendation to the board that YOU should be terminated!
- Disrespectfully Not Yours, DS
Needless to say that letter was professional suicide. My assistant left teaching and I took the only job I could get. Learn from my mistake. Be thankful and move on. Superintendents rule the world and it's probably best not to be too truthful in your resignation letter.
