Mr. Jerry Awe
Hiring Manager
Rising Sun
6 Valley View Drive
Aberdeen, SD 54545


Dear Mr. Awe:

My friend Lou Skip who is working for your organization insisted that my profile fits perfectly with the vacancy of Special Education Teacher at Rising Sun and I should apply here. My love towards the special children, education and experience at the SOS Village makes me the right candidate for the job opening of a Special Education Teacher.

Working experience with the special children at the SOS Village was very demanding yet extremely fulfilling. Children who have special needs and require assistance in leading a near normal life have always fascinated me not as a subject but on humanitarian grounds. I have worked extensively with teachers (and independently) to nurture their minds and bodies so that they can acquire semblance of self worth and to equip them with basic knowledge and skills that lead to a normal life. Moreover, I am proficient not only in employing mundane procedures to accomplish my goals but to communicate effectively with them using a variety of media. Over and above, I am well versed in managing time and resources efficiently to bring out desired results in behavior and education.

I am very excited at the prospect of employing my skills to bring some happiness in the lives of children with special needs at Rising Sun. Please refer to the enclosed resume for more information regarding my strengths and feel free to contact me at (999) 999-9999 for any information that you may require to support my credentials here.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Sabrina Titan
