Mr. Edmund Furr
Aspire Public Schools
6 Hanson Street
Derry, NH 938360


Dear Mr. Furr:

I would like to work as First Year Teacher at Aspire Public Schools as your needs complement my strengths. I have recently acquired a bachelor’s degree in teaching from the Teacher Education Accreditation Council and would now like to apply my teaching expertise in a real time environment. As I worked as a part-time teacher during my study, I believe that I have had enough exposure to modern teaching practices.

During my training as a teacher, I was coached in the various manners of leading group studies, discussions and demonstrations along with ensuring that the object of study was communicated to the students effectively. My ability to teach basic concepts that promote physical, emotional, social and intellectual development are well honed and take pride in making mathematics and science fun for children as I understand that studying these can be considered dry by the students of this age. Additionally, I possess the knowhow of establishing inviting classroom environment in order to promote learning and assist students in reaching their maximum potential.

I am excited to the prospect of joining Aspire Public Schools as a First Year Teacher and will call you soon to discuss this in detail. I will be available to speak with at (000) 142-7474 if you need further information.

Thank your taking out the time to read this and review the enclosed resume.
