Administrators of school district observe your cover letter as an indication of your interest in teaching, your writing skills and aptitude to communicate effectively with students.

The most excellent cover letters for teachers having no experience come alive – that is to say, they express something of your personality in a method that your resume usually will not. Cover letters for entry level teachers are a great chance to do 3 things:

1. Demonstrate that you are very interested in working for their school district.

2. Draw attention to your strengths and enthusiasm as a teacher.

3. Express your passion of teaching for working with children and young adults of the specific grade level or subject you will teach.

The following sample will guide you how to write an effective cover letter for a teaching position while you have no work experience.

Ms. Sara Chris
Personnel Manager
St. Andrews School District
547 New Street
Chestnut Hill, MA 98222


Dear Ms. Chris:

I learned about your need for a Mathematics Teacher with great interest because my qualifications, education and skills  match closely with your job description. With a Masters degree in mathematics and secondary teaching certificate, I have the potential to become the most effective teacher of St. Andrews School District.

My student teaching experience has allowed me to widen a special relationship with the age group that I get pleasure from most i.e. high school students. As co-advisor of the Computer Club throughout my practicum, I also gained secretarial and managerial skills that improved my viewpoint and my dedication to the extra-curricular part of the secondary school experience. As a shining student at Boston College, I have done extremely well academically and worked unpaid as an assistant at the computer center, where I polished my interpersonal and communication skills.

I am particularly interested in the St. Andrews School District due to its demonstrated obligation to provide excellent education, as evidenced by the favorable student and faculty ratio and high-tech classroom environment.

I would be grateful for a chance to speak with you regarding this position to discuss the results I could bring as a teacher. I will contact you next week to follow-up. In the mean time, I can be reached at (999) 999-9999 or [Your Email Here]. Thank you for your time and consideration.
