Dear Ms. Custer,
This letter is being submitted in order to apply for the English Instructor position at your school. I know that my experience in English coupled with my love for teaching would make me an asset and would be beneficial to the students at Portland State University.
I have summarized my qualifications below which can be found in great detail on my attached resume:
•I have been teaching for more than sixteen years and enjoy this profession and take great pride in getting even those who have the least interest in English motivated.
•My education includes a Master’s Degree in English with a minor in Creative Writing.
•I believe that it is important to teach students the beauty of the English language and how to properly execute a well written document that is not filled with the text speak that are so common today.
I know that education is very important and that students need to have a firm grasp on the English language. For this reason, I know that I would be a great addition to the faculty at Portland State University.
I feel that a meeting to discuss both my experience and your needs for an English Instructor would be in both our best interests. Feel free to call me at any time at (222)-728-2294or by emailing me at [email]
