Dear Ms. James:

If you seek an accomplished Teacher who is technically proficient and has a verifiable track record, then we have good reason to meet. Possessing a firm grasp of the most of high school subjects along with a careful history of teaching practices, I am confident that I am the right candidate for high school teaching position.

People tend to believe that teaching is an easy job – I differ. There is nothing more challenging than understandably imparting knowledge. I possess the ability to communicate lessons in not only an effective way but in a fun manner also. My inborn patience and the ability to work effectively with young adults have earned me considerable success over the years. I am of the opinion that students will only learn when they are comfortable with a teacher which is why I strive hard to plan lessons based on individual student’s ability to learn.

You will notice two common threads throughout my teaching career, i.e., I thrive on challenges and lead by example. I also comprehend the need for professionalism which is why I know just where to draw the line between a student-teacher relationship.

I am confident that I have sufficient skills and abilities to add to the success of your school. I may be reached at (000) 999-2222 if you need further information regarding my claims in my resume. I look forward to meeting with you in person. Thank you for taking out time from a busy schedule to view and consider my application.


Sincere regards,

Lily Lucas
