Dear Ms. Andrew:
I am writing to apply for an English Teacher position at San Mateo Union High School District, in response to your recent advertisement. Along with my Master’s degree in English, California Teacher’s License and six months of teaching assistant experience, I am certain in my ability to become the most worthy teacher of San Mateo Union High School.
Some of my key strengths include:
✓ Able to plan a program of study that meets the individual student’s needs, interests, and abilities
✓ Demonstrated ability to guide the learning process toward the achievement of curriculum goals
✓ Highly skilled in establishing clear objectives for all lessons, units, projects, and other activities
✓ Track record of encouraging, modeling and enforcing socially acceptable behavior in students
✓ Able to utilize practices that involve parents in the education of their child
I have a strong interest in pursuing my career in English teaching. With experiences working at both the elementary and high school levels, in addition to activities outside of the usual classroom, I offer you a blend of talents and experiences. My primary classroom teaching experience was as a unpaid elementary school religion teacher at a local church where I worked for three months during high-school.
My resume is attached for your review. I am sending an official copy of my transcript along with references under a separate cover. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
