Mr. David Roddenberry
University Dean
Florida National University
90 NW 12th Avenue
Florida City, FL 92064


Dear Mr. Roddenberry:

I graduated from the Florida National University last year with a major in Sociology and would like to work as part of the adjunct faculty at the university. As a highly enthusiastic individual with hands-on teaching experience, I am positive that I have much to contribute to the success of university.

As noted on my resume, I am proficient in ensuring delivery of cooperative and experiential learning – that is all the rage in academic settings nowadays. My natural flair for assisting students in meeting their educational goals and career aspirations will be an asset for my students. In addition, my ability to take critical thinking initiatives while managing classroom instruction and curriculum development has been commended many times. Besides, I take pride in my familiarity with academic and social support where students are concerned.

I am confident that my motivation and productive work habits combined with profound knowledge in my area of teaching (Sociology) will make me a valuable resource of the university. I look forward to meet you and bring my skills, knowledge and experience to Florida National University. I will contact you after 6 days to arrange a meeting. If you need to reach me before then, I’ll be available at (000) 833-8118.

Thank you in anticipation of considering my application.
