A letter of interest is nothing more than a cover letter – with a twist!
Where a cover letter is usually written the response to an advertisement, a letter of interest serves to inquire about a possible position without the benefit of an ad.
A Teachers Aide letter of interest shows a candidate’s interest in working for a specific school district.
It is a bit difficult to write because you are not directly referring to an open position.
Someone may have mentioned that there is an opening or you just want to be part of an organization.
Fortunately for many candidates, positions do open up once an employer looks at a resume or a letter of interest with piques their curiosity.

Ms. Benedicta Sasha
Phillipsburg Junior School
88 Heathrow Avenue
Phillipsburg, NJ 45502
Dear Ms. Sasha:
Capitalizing on my success in managing children of different age groups, I am seeking a professional opportunity where my teaching assistance skills and clerical expertise can benefit Phillipsburg Junior School.
Curriculum development and lesson planning are areas where I excel. As a versatile educator, I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse set of students over the last three years. Many of my students needed particular attention due to learning disabilities, and this experience with them has taught me to be sensitive to their unique abilities. I have a demonstrated ability to provide students with individualized and group support.
One of my greatest strengths is my ability to ensure discipline inside the class without coming across as stern. I believe that developing and maintaining a trusting rapport with students goes a long way in helping them achieve their learning goals. Since I possess a passion for life-long learning, I believe that I can be quite a positive influence on students.
I anticipate a long-term working relationship with your school and look forward to hearing from you.

Ms. Rebecca Hall
Good Foundations Academy
63 N Pond Road
Mount Laurel, NJ 78787
Dear Ms. Hall:
I am writing to inquire about a possible teacher aide opening at your school. As a qualified teacher aide, I can bring to the class motivation and encouragement, both of which are often overlooked by many teachers as an important part of the education system.
Displaying a high level of interpersonal and communication skills, I can function as an effective teacher aide who has the capacity to take the lead when necessary. Here is a list of qualifications that should interest you:
- Unmatched ability to reinforce lessons presented by lead teachers, by reviewing materials with students on a one-on-one basis
- Proven track record of assisting teachers in preparing for lessons by researching materials and exhibits
- Hands-on experience in observing students’ performance and recording relevant information to assess progress
If there isn’t an open position right now, perhaps you can still review my resume for a possibility later? I will be in touch after a week to see if you have an open slot, so that we can discuss this further. If required, you can contact me at (222) 222-2222.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
