Special needs teachers do not only look after the education aspect of a person with special needs. They are also required to provide both emotional and behavior support so that they can fit into society.

Mr. Norris Alexis
Manager HR
School Spring

Stowe, VT 84949


Dear Mr. Alexis:

Owing to my compassionate nature and a natural love for special children, I decided to choose a vocation where I can work to make better the lives of special people for my inner satisfaction. With this awareness and a sizable experience in teaching special children, I want to apply as a Special Needs Teacher at School Spring.

I have been especially trained in developing individually specific curriculum and programs for people with special needs. Through this, I intend to work with children with moderate to high disabilities – both physical and mental in nature. Possessing full knowledge of learning disabilities, I am proficient in assisting children and young adults with faculties that will assist them in managing language impairments, autism, combined deafness and even traumatic brain injury.

I would be happy to discuss this position with you in person and am available for an immediate interview. I appreciate the time and effort you have put in reviewing this letter. I am sure we will discover much in common.
