Tips for how to give my 2 weeks notice, 1 week after returning from Maternity leave?

(and how to not feel so guilty?)
I already have another job offer and have been planning on leaving, but when I came back to my job, the whole reporting structure changed, and I lost my direct reports (annoyed but since I'm leaving it doesn't matter) and I'm reporting to a new manager and his boss is someone I don't necessarily like. None of this really matters, but it's just a lot of change now that I've come back.
Anyways, since I'm switching managers and everything, I'm switching a lot of my responsibilities and I'm starting to feel guilty that they're giving me things and then I'm just planning on leaving....
Does anyone have any tips/templates for a letter that I can send to them? Do I just send them an email, or is it best to tell them in person? This is my first job out of college and I'm just having a lot of anxiety over having to tell them and I could use a lot of advice!

Please share your success networking stories - if you found a job through networking how did you do it?
How many people did you call? Did you find contacts on LinkedIn and approach?
I am having hard time with it. I was given notice and emailed/ texted people just to connect and talked. Very few even responded. I know it is a numbers game, but it is so lonely and discouraging - like begging for a job...
But they say it is still more effective than applying on the web.

I saw how my colleagues were freaking out and then I heard about this concept. So I did what I thought was quietly quitting - I just did the minimum required of me. Then we got our monthly numbers and I was ahead of plan!
Give it a shot!

Once someone signs an offer letter, is it generally okay to give notice to your present employer?
(Basically, it's a contract, yes?)

Is it discrimination to let the oldest employee work all nights and weekends when a younger inexperienced person is taken into a position?
We did have fair scheduling until this person came into the group, she says she can not get a baby sitter. So another employee and myself have all the nights, except one. He gets a couple of days during the week, I sometimes get one on the weekend?

Searching the internet
I was looking through job postings that are in my field just to see what's out there and I'm finding an increasing number of employers requiring a master's degree and at least 5 years of experience with salaries in the 40k range...you have got to be kidding me.
This isn't so much about me but I find that offensive. A master's degree to be paid less than the national average in the US...got it. I'm also shocked because when I started in this field about 2 years ago in an entry-level position with a bachelor's degree that was the salary range with the requirements being a bachelor's degree in a related field and no experience with the specific job required but other general skills related to it. I feel I got extremely lucky but I'm also wondering if you can move up salary-wise in this field with experience alone.
The way the goalposts are constantly being moved is outrageous.
