Middle year programs provide a great base for students; this is why much emphasis is put on the skills of the teachers who lead these programs. They work in schools that cater to the educational needs of students between the ages of 12 and 15 years (6th to 8th grades). Apart from lesson planning and curriculum development, middle school teachers perform many duties such as acting as mentor, behavioral management and conferring with parents.
Middle school teachers who have expertise in providing instruction at this level, are usually preferred which is why it is important to build up on your skills when you write a cover letter for this position.

Dear Mr. Luke:
My career goal is to secure a teaching position in a middle year program where my nurturing personality, coupled with extensive teaching experience can be utilized to encourage students to meet their academic goals. Morgan Hill Middle School’s middle year programs have intrigued me for many years as I have been constantly following the success of these modules and would like to contribute to them by virtue of my expertise.
While academic excellence is very important in a middle year program, I do not focus just on academics. Equally important I believe is to nurture a positive attitude towards learning and promoting self confidence. With my ability to develop lesson plans based on approved curriculum and encourage students’ participation in group activities, I have led many successful middle year programs. I am of the opinion that creating a positive educational climate for students is very important and I can modify lesson plans according to students’ progress. Furthermore, I am well-versed in establishing and communicating clear learning objectives and have recently introduced a novel assessment system to evaluate students’ performance.
At my present place of work, I have been credited with revamping the middle year education program by introducing IB (International Baccalaureate) which is the future of education worldwide now.
If you are on the lookout for a middle year teaching professional with a futuristic vision, I may be the one you are looking for. Thank you for taking out the time to read my application. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
