I have to give my notice at my job [I found another position that better suits our needs]. Its a daycare, I'm really nervous because I "heard" if anybody give their notice they'll be fired on the spot. While 2 people have given notices but one was close with the boss people, the other is only PT. They could replace me easily, I'm sure. No worries really...but I know they'd be ticked off because of who I associate with at work [the "trouble" group...long story short those of us who will not tolerate crap]. Anyways, I don't want to neccesary say I found a new job. I don't think thats appropriate. But my priorities have changed since August. I see DD for an hour and half MAX during the weekdays. Maybe 3 hours since I spend majority of the day doing school work, I couldn't do during the week. I know they don't understand that. The new position I'd be able to see her all day long, I wouldn't have 1 on 1 time with her..but still. Anywhere is better then where we are at now. I just don't know what to say to them when I give them my notice [which is very general - this will be my last day for DD and I, we thank you blah blah blah].

ADVICE!

I've got to be back at work in an hour [1250 EST], so any advice before then is welcomed!

You really don't have to give them too many specifics, other than to say something along the lines of I appreciate the oppurtunity you have given me working here, however due to personal circumstances (changes in personal circumstances something like that), i will nolonger be able to continue. My last day will be such and such. Make sure its 2 weeks, so you don't get in trouble for not giving 2 weeks notice. Thank them again for the oppurtunity. Some employers require written notice of your 2 weeks, so maybe bring a typed and signed letter and you could say Due to changes in my personal circumstances, I unfortunately have to give you my two weeks notice and hand them the letter. Say my last day will be such and such.

HTH.

Thanks, I do have something typed out. I will not be able to give a full two weeks [a week and half though] due to when the new place wants/needs me to start by [they really needed me to start this week...but they said by the 26th they'll wait til]. So, yeah. I've read someinfo onlin e, I feel comfortable. I kn ow they'll ask a lot of questions...but IDK. I just know its "time" to move on.
