Dear Mr. Collins:

One of my history students once asked me, “Why would I learn about historical period?” Now, she is now a grade A student in History studying at Wisconsin State University! This became possible due to the impact of a subject when projected in a positive manner.

I have been teaching history for the last decade and am proud to say that I have had a long string of successful student pass through me. I now want to work on a larger level by offering my teaching services at Riverton High School to deliver my knowledge to huge class!

With a keen knowledge of ancient history and post war civilizations, I can manage classroom instruction in a fun manner. On a number of occasions, I have infused drama in my history class for the students to be able to memorize important dates in a non conventional manner in order to ensure retention. This is why my students love the subject! Apart from regular historical information, I possess the capability of fostering an understanding of human behavior throughout the ages and also information of world problems and various approaches to solutions.

Coupled with knowledge of modern teaching methods and educational pedagogy, I am a complete teacher! If you require, I can meet you in order to put on the table what I can do in terms on teaching and class management. I appreciate your time in going through my job application in detail.
