Most lead teachers at one time or another, will be responsible for some extended school program activity. Teachers who opt to work at this position solely are usually interested in teaching remedial classes or managing after school physical activities. If you are hoping to work in this capacity, make sure that your resume reveals that you have the ability to endure what this work demands.

After school teachers are expected to perform many duties that lead teachers perform during school hours. The only difference is that they perform these duties after school. They ensure the safety of students and also make sure that they have done any homework given to them on the previous day.

Interacting with students is the primary job of after school teachers. They are expected to work with each student to determine their pace and progress and impart education accordingly.

Dear Mr. Newman:

Enthusiasm, commitment and dedication. These are my key attributes which make me a suitable candidate for an After School Teacher position currently available at Flushing Elementary School. As an experienced and licensed teacher, I am ready to contribute to your success.

I have been developing and implementing curriculums and lesson plans for regular school for five years it would be interesting to apply the same in an extended program. I have keenly observed many after school remedial classes and activities and I am positive that I can meet the challenges that they provide.

I am firm but not strict which is why I can manage students of all ages in a positive manner – by merely setting boundaries. This, coupled with my experience in imparting knowledge in conventional school and for after school activities, should go a long way in making me eligible for an after school teacher’s position. Please refer to my resume which will provide you with insight into my student development skills and much more.

I would like to meet with you in a personal interview to discuss this teaching position in detail. To follow-up, I will call you after 5 days. Meanwhile you can reach me any time on my cell or email address given above.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Sasha Abraham
