Dear Ms. Lawrence:
I have been working as a TA (Teacher’s Aide) for quite some time now and having seen your advertisement for an Instructional Assistant’s post, and excited to offer my services to Aspire Public Schools. Along with my diploma in teaching assistance, good classroom management and clerical skills, and six months’ hands-on experience, I am certain in my capability to become an important member of your team.
My experience as a TA has taught me what the job of an instructional assistant entails. I understand the demands of this job and comfortable with performing my duties set on predefined standards and procedures. I like working with students and able to fill in the gap that is usually residual after classroom sessions. I am deemed friendly where students are concerned, yet my professionalism does not allow me to get too comfortable with them so as not to compromise it.
Furthermore, I have a demonstrated ability to support classroom procedures and manage student activities to ensure all students are fully engaged in learning. In addition, I am highly skilled in developing and implementing lesson plans and classroom activities in keeping with school standards and SOPs, assisting instructors with routine activities in the classroom, maintaining student attendance, helping mark grades, typing support papers and photocopying materials used for lessons. My enclosed resume will provide you with complete details about my qualifications and skills.
As an enthusiastic Instructional Assistant, I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this position with you in detail. I will call your office after ten days to follow-up on my job application. In the interim, you may contact me on my cell number at 999-999-9999 or via email at [Email].
Thank you for your time and consideration.
