Indicating that your work is good in a cover letter is imperative for your candidature to be seen as a viable one. But always keep a measure of control when you self-praise. While employers do want to know how good you are, there is such a thing as going overboard. If you have it, flaunt it – but with finesse.
Physical dexterity and friendliness are perhaps the most important things to emphasize when writing a cover letter for bus attendant position. Communication and interpersonal skills are next. Highlight the fact that you possess all of them in a way that the employer has no choice but to send you an email, asking you to come and see him at your earliest!
When knocking on new doors, the cover letter is what will provide an umbrella to your resume by charting out how well you can do what you have claimed to be able to do in the resume. Make this connection between a cover letter and a resume count. If you speak better than you write, ask a friend to help you out in writing a cover letter, but make sure that your correspondence is not below par at any cost.

Dear Mr. Stevenson:
I have worked as a bus attendant for preschool and elementary school students for a long enough time to be aware of the grit and carefulness that is needed to do justice to the job. Specifically, I have over 8 years of experience in this field and ready to work for your school district in a similar capacity.
Through my experiences, I have developed the following skills over the years:
• Assisting students for the purpose of providing safe loading and unloading from buses, during normal and emergency situations.
• Monitoring students and daily bus activities to assure appropriate conduct and adherence to behavioral standards.
• Working in conjunction with bus drivers to ensure student safety and maintaining a positive environment during transport.
As an enthusiastic individual takes new challenges and handles emergencies effectively, I would like to meet with you to discuss how my background would best fit your needs. I will call soon to set up an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
