    Default How do you finish off a letter to a teacher?

    Well, I went to finish off the letter "Yours faithfully...[my name]", but then I thought, "Do people still write this way?" "Is it strange to sign a letter off like this these days?"

    How do you finish off a letter to a teacher?

    I write 'Kind regards'.

    That was the script when I worked for a large company, so I have just kept doing that.

    My DP uses 'Yours faithfully'.

    Wow - you guys were like...super fast!

    I might give the whole "kind regards" a try for a change then. I was concerned I was being a little 'out-dated'.

    If it was a formal-ish type letter I'd got with 'regards', if it's just a note in a diary I use 'cheers'.

    We use 'Kind regards' at work so that's what I use everywhere else too.

    I'm glad you asked this. I wrote one a couple weeks ago and went to use "yours sincerely" and then changed it to "kind regards".

    It all feels a bit odd to me now.

    As a teacher - Kind regards, Regards is the standard. When parents feel really comfortable with me they may write 'Cheers'.
