Workplace wins can only materialize through skills. And every employer knows this quite well which is why it is recommended that you never let your cover letter leave your workstation without them. It does not matter which niche you occupy in a company; a teaching assistant cover letter that reeks of skills is considered top notch.
Apart from mentioning of skills, great sentences have the strength to win reluctant readers. Imagine yourself in an employer’s place – having to read hundreds of cover letters in a week is no fun. But if you are provided with a cover letter that “shines”, you wouldn’t pass it up, would you? Neither would an employer looking for the perfect employee. You need to make a sound with your cover letter since you are typically sending it to a noisy place where it may not be heard if it is ordinary in nature!
When you sit down to write a cover letter for teaching assistant position, do not time yourself. Limiting yourself to an hour or two or even more means missing out on something. Writing the perfect cover letter is time well invested in the future. So without barriers of conformity and time limitations, your cover letter can be the best piece of writing an employer has read.
Here is a cover letter sample of a teaching assistant that is written along these lines:

Dear Ms. Hurst:
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program that you are presently in the process of introducing at Deerhart School especially piqued my curiosity. Presently enrolled in a distance learning MYP course, my interest in working as a teaching assistant with your school is obvious.
Apart from a certification in teaching MYP (expected to be completed in 2 weeks), I offer the following attributes in a teaching assistant role:
• Demonstrated expertise in strengthening comprehension skills and encouraging critical thinking.
• Known for creating focused lessons aimed at meeting individualized student goals.
• Skilled in adapting lessons for advanced students and students with learning challenges.
• Qualified to assist lead teachers in developing and implementing the core curriculum.
With a strong passion for education and learning, I have much potential to contribute to your educational system. To discuss this further, I would like to meet with you. I will be in touch with your office to secure a possible interview date and time. You may reach me at (000) 999-9999 in the interim.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
