Dear Ms. Michael:
I am writing to apply for the position of an Elementary Teacher at the Holton School District. The vacancy came to my knowledge from a friend Ms. Karen Neil who works as a mathematics teacher for grade sixth.
I am committed to create a respectful and engaging environment for children so that they are encouraged to learn and become powerful thinkers who have confidence in their abilities. Moreover, I am able to quickly and easily build positive relationships with students, parents and coworkers.
During my experience as a teacher aide at ABC School, I had the opportunity to interact with diverse student populations including disabled children.. A few of the my achievements include; developed lesson plans that met individual student needs, made examination question papers in a way to triggered child’s ability to think creatively, and regulated teaching standards. All of these strengths make me a strong contender for this position in Holton School District.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you in person and discuss how my teaching and language skills with immense related experience can meet the needs of your school district. I look forward to hearing from you soon at your convenience to further discuss my qualifications. If you need any additional information from my side, please contact me at (231) 399-9999
