There was a time when the most cover letters opened like the following:
Please accept this letter and enclosed resume for the position of a Preschool Director that was advertised in the Daily News …
Nowadays, no one opens cover letters in this way and no hiring manager accepts them. Now cover letters should be mind-blowing.
In order to write a good cover letter, you should identify the prospective employer’s needs and customize your letter accordingly. You must understand that a cover letter is a tool to sell your skills and abilities as a preschool director.

Dear Mr. Morris:
Good education is the harbinger of an organized society. This belief has led me to successfully choose the path of teaching for 12 years and eventually land at a position where I can truly make a difference in the world of education.
As a dynamic individual who has a demonstrated ability to relate to teaching professionals and students, I could be a great asset to Nobel School. Some of my major achievements include:
• Introduced International Baccalaureate program thereby cultivating an environment conducive to futuristic learning
• Trained 25 teachers for the new IB program and seamlessly integrated them into the program
• Implemented a specialized curriculum for children with special needs specifically Autism and ADHD
• Increased teaching outcomes by 68% by introducing teacher training and professional development programs.
Since letters are no match for face-to-face meetings, I will call you next week to determine if an interview can be arranged. If you require additional information to augment the facts in this letter, please contact me at (000) 111-1011.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
