Dear Mr. Andrew:
I am writing to apply for the School Bus Driver job, as advertised in the Daily Times. My previous position as a Bus Driver at Nashville High School was quite fulfilling in the sense that it allowed me to do what I love doing, i.e., driving a bus and working with children whom I adore. I understand that transporting a bus full of children is a huge responsibility – but, by virtue of my CDL license and school bus endorsement, I am well qualified to take on this challenge at Logan Elementary School.
My qualifications include:
• Demonstrated ability to conduct pre-trip and post-trip inspections of assigned vehicle
• Hands-on experience in using established routes and designated bus stops.
• Well-versed in using emergency evacuation drills
• Competent at driving efficiently under varying traffic conditions and inclement weather
• Track record of establishing favorable working relationships with staff
My training in following safety procedures while driving is up-to-date as I have been attending continuous workshops on safe bus driving and child management. With my ability to use the GPS, I never have problems locating areas when transporting children to their activities and field trips.
This opportunity excites me because of several reasons – the main of them being the fact that I will be able to utilize my skills for a renowned school district. My resume speaks for itself, but it would be delightful to meet with you in person and see how you look at this position.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
