Dear Mr. Ethan:

I have been looking for a position as a Classroom Assistant since I moved to Peoria back in July. Having come across your advertisement for one in last Sunday’s newspaper, I am contended to offer my services for the same. I am confident that my ability to manage a culturally diverse population and relevant behavior management skills will come in handy if I am a part of Peoria Learning.

I was previously working for Bettle Learning in Evanston and have developed a number of skills in performing the clerical and other work duties of a classroom assistant. I have a profound ability to engage in effective working relationships with both colleagues and young students. Additionally, I possess advanced training in behavior management which is a great plus point when handling students of diverse backgrounds. My love for working with children and the corresponding skills in managing a classroom in regards to planning resource cycles are definitely above par.

I recognize the fact that people hired at this position are scanned heavily for backgrounds and I can assure you that mine will come out shining. I am very excited at this opportunity and would like to meet you soon so we can discuss it in person. I will contact your office for an appointment during next week and will be available at (451) 444-4214 if you need to reach me before that. Thank you in advance for considering my job application for this superb opportunity of Classroom Assistant at Peoria Learning.


Truly yours,
