Dear Ms. Henry:
Leafing through your school’s website, I came to know about the vacancy of English Teacher at the Davison Community Schools. Along with my Master’s degree in English and extensive experience as an English teacher, I have the ability to become a key member of your faculty. It would be my pleasure to work as English Teacher with Davison Community Schools because of its commitment to provide standard and excellent education to the young generation.
I am a strong candidate for this job because I have two years’ extensive experience of teaching English. In course of my previous job, I had to give four lectures per day and I was also responsible for the extracurricular activities of my assigned class. I maintained student records, checked assignments, took presentations, met with parents and resolved all kinds of hurdles which my class and students face during the entire academic course. Nevertheless, I was the member of examination committee too.
Moreover, I have excellent verbal, listening and written communication skills in English and Spanish which would enable me to manage a class of multicultural children. Above all, I possess good organization abilities, and enthusiastic and committed towards my work and responsibilities. My enclosed resume contains more details about my qualifications and skills which suitably match your requirements.
As an friendly and talented English Teacher, I would like to meet with you to discuss my skills and qualification in greater detail. I will be available for interview at your convenience. I will call your office next week to follow-up and can be reached at (010) 000-3210 or via email at evie.jos @ email . com.
Thank you in anticipation of considering my application.
