Ms. Katherine Adams
Illinois Elementary School
1015 Maple Hill Rd
Bloomington, IL 21005
Dear Ms. Adams:
Your advertisement for the position of an Educational Assistant piqued my interest. I have always admired Illinois Elementary School due to its respect for diversity and would love to promote equity among your students. My previous experiences in teaching assistance have given me the opportunity to work with students from different cultures and backgrounds which, I believe, makes me well-qualified for this position.
As noted on the enclosed resume, I have worked as a Teaching Assistant with The Northwest School of Innovative Learning during which I came in direct interaction with children that were not only from diverse cultural backgrounds but also possessed linguistic diversity. It was an enthralling experience to learn to communicate with these children and understanding their needs. During my job, I gained technological knowledge to operate computer assisted instructions for language, reading and pronunciation activities. Due to my enriched experiences, I now possess excellent technological and communicative proficiency which, I confidently believe, deems me as an excellent candidate for this position.
My resume is enclosed for your perusal. I look forward to meeting with you in near future, during which I hope to learn more about your school’s culture and how I might contribute to its success.
