Geography teachers develop curriculum in keeping with the mental level of the student. They develop lesson plans which they are required to implement in groups or for the whole class depending on their setting.
Apart from managing instruction for students, geography teachers are expected to supervise classroom behavior and act as a mentor to students. They also evaluate students’ performance and also work on their problem areas.
Following is a great cover letter for a geography teacher looking for a position in this regard.

Dear Mr. Curtis:
Teaching is a passion that I have not been able to forego despite working in other capacities for years. My interest lies in teaching Geography because it was my strongest subject during college and due to the fact that I hold a Masters degree in Geography from Wisconsin State University.
As required, I have a demonstrated ability to:
• Prepare, deliver and assess high-quality learning opportunities in lessons
• Participate in the creation and completion of schemes of work
• Monitor and promote the advancement of students
• Establish a classroom as a successful learning environment
Translating lesson plans into fantastic learning experiences is what I do best which is why I have been successful in maintaining a functional learning environment in the class all through the time I have worked as an assistant geography teacher. Understanding that Geography may not be the most interesting of subjects, I ensure that all my lesson plans are engaging and interactive.
The attached resume evidences my expertise and experience in geography teaching and will provide you with more detail on my aptitude to impart lessons. I am eager to meet with you in an interview and will call you next week to follow-up.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact me at (000) 333-9879 any time of the day.
