Dear Mr. Sims,

Please accept this letter as my official resignation from my social worker position with Children and Youth Services of Parkland County. My last day of employment will be April 28, 2015. I have decided to take a position with my former employer, as I feel more comfortable in that working environment.

I have truly appreciated the chance to learn and grow as a counselor with your agency. However, I feel that I am more skilled when working specifically with the drug and alcohol population. I did enjoy working with the children and with the staff here at the agency.

I will be sure to inform all of my current clients of my resignation and will complete all of my paperwork and progress notes. I’m happy to help introduce a new social worker to the families and update my replacement as necessary. You can call me at 000-000-0000 if you require further assistance.
