The Essence of Professionalism
> Dear (English Teacher X)
> I've read through your letter and to be quite honest, I'm tired of trying to play referee between you and (the school). Therefore, let the cards fall where they may. You are an adult and it is for you to decide how best to proceed from here.
> I wish you the best of luck and hope your next teaching assignment lives up to your full expectations.

Dear (Director of chain school in Moscow)
Yeah, it must be tiring being the nominal leader of the absolute worst McLanguage school in Russia. I can only pity you.
Oh, and best of luck to you too. I suspect you'll need it.
(English Teacher X.)
