HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Hutchinson school district wants the state to cancel the teaching certificate of a woman who resigned because she said she no longer had “any more passion” for the job.

The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/1KRSCup ) reports Amanda Brackett said in her Aug. 19 resignation letter that her third-grade students need somebody who will provide “the best education possible.” Brackett, the mother of a baby, was under contract through May.

Because of her contract, the school board voted unanimously to reject the resignation. The board gave Brackett grace time to reconsider, or it would file a complaint with the state, but she didn’t return to work.

The school board approved the hiring of a replacement Monday night. Superintendent Shelly Kiblinger says students “suffer” if teachers are allowed to leave abruptly.
