A motivation letter for a teaching position is somewhat different from a cover letter in the sense that it provides less information on a candidate’s skills and more on his suitability for the job.

The following is a sample motivation letter for a teaching job that will assist you in understanding what it entails.

Dear Mr. Manning:

I am applying for the position of English Teacher at the Ohio State University as my ambition is to impart language skills which I have a firm belief is a much needed skill.

During my certification, I have found that I am quite skilled in imparting information in a profound and detailed manner and possess the capacity to work with individualized curriculum. Aspiring to gain excellent experience and providing benefit of my commitment to excellence, I am confident that I will bring a high level of enthusiasm to this program.

As a focused and detail-oriented teacher, I’d like to meet with you in person to discuss this position in more detail. To follow-up, I’ll call you next week and will be available at (120) 321-1000 in the interim. Thank you for your time in consideration. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
