Mr. William Homer
Prairie School
20 E 36th Street
New York, NY 51900


Dear Mr. Homer:

All children should be provided with opportunity and support to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually. Keeping this philosophy in mind, I believe I am a cut above the rest of the candidates who have applied for the position of an Early Childhood Teacher at the Prairie School.

I had been working for Mini Miracles for 3 years where I developed many skills and capabilities regarding early childhood curriculum. I am especially trained in developing age-appropriate curriculum and lesson plans which would helpful in achieving goals of Prairie School while promoting social and cognitive development in children. My prime focus as an early childhood teacher is to provide additional care to semi-dyslexic children to provide them with the confidence that they need in order to excel in a challenging world.

Possessing strong management skills, I can handle an entire class of children by exercising authority. I understand that teaching requires an individual to take on many avatars especially in the role of an early childhood instructor; I believe that I have mastered most of them during the last nine years at this position.

I am especially interested in working at Prairie School as I am aware of its efforts and successes as an early childhood institute and I am confident that I have much to contribute. You will find my resume (enclosed) interesting and I would like to meet with you to build up on the information that it holds.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
