Dear Mr. Collins:

The formative years of little children are the most important and the presence of a good teacher in their lives is equally important. While most people differ, I believe that a trained teacher is the only good teacher. I have been specifically trained to manage both elementary and middle years and deem myself an excellent choice for the position of a 5th Grade Teacher at Paducah Middle School.

My focus has always been on providing children with the benefit of a good curriculum but I am equally focused on their physical, mental, social and emotional development. Taking both these challenges together and striving towards making them work is a passion that I take very seriously.

With a solid background in developing and implementing educational curriculums and ensuring to maintain a standard of behavior, my work has been instrumental in achieving a functional atmosphere. I believe in communicating with both parents and school management at every stage of a child’s development and have been very successful in implementing my choice of plans.

From the enclosed resume you will see that I either meet or exceed all the needs that you have provided in your advertisement. I am available for an immediate interview and look forward to discussing my aspirations in person with you!

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Sally Field
