Dear Mr. Shaw:

Working with people who have a keen interest in the American ideals and the coinciding implementation of social skills has always been of great significance to me. It is no wonder that my interest was piqued as soon as I saw the advertisement for a Social Studies Teacher at Windsor School District. As an enthusiastic teacher with hands on experience in developing sound opinions based on facts of the social world, I deem myself a good choice for this position.

I possess the necessary knowledge of state and federal special education laws and the ability to teach appropriately the cultural differences that affect our country. I am highly skilled in assigning, teaching, reviewing and grading academic material and possess demonstrated classroom management skills.

My personal ideology consists of the conviction that mutually respectful relationships are essential in maintaining harmony and this is what I teach my students. I also possess the appropriate state teaching certificate that you have mentioned in your advertisement and possess the capability of teaching all content and subject matter related to social studies.

My education, experience and skills will enable me to work professionally and responsibly as a social studies teacher at Windsor School District. I look forward to meeting you personally in order to discuss this position further. I will call your office after one week to check the status of my application. In the meantime, I’ll be available at (627) 292-9992. Thank you for your consideration.


Best Regards,

Midge Marlow
