Dear Mr. Ryans,
I am very interested in applying for a teaching position with Jonas Elementary School-as I have heard nothing but the best about your school system and educators. As a 2007 graduate of the University of California-San Diego, I have ample student teaching experience in 2nd through 5th grades. To this end, I have worked in both city and suburban school systems, and thus can apply my comprehensive experience with both environments to the role of teacher at your school.
At present, I teach at San Diego Middle School in San Diego, and work with students that are minimal to high risk; due to the inner city location of San Diego. Along with the regular responsibilities involved with teaching students at this level, I am also involved in a mentoring program that helps these students find various scholastic interests to reach for and learn about. In this capacity, I use my talents of leadership, mentorship, and nurturing capabilities to move them forward-no matter what their possible setbacks.
As a teacher of middle school students, I am challenged every day to find the best way to approach and motivate students to enjoy the process of learning, and the life that education can bring these students. I thrive in this challenge, and am fulfilled every time I face a challenge and meet its demands with aplomb.
This said, my goal is to bring my passion for teaching, great capabilities with middle school age students, and experience in various scholastic environments to the open position of teacher at San Diego Middle School. I am available at your disposal to offer more details on my experience, as well as to speak further regarding the requirements and expectations of this position. Please contact me at (999)999-9999 at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,
Signature
Sherry Millhouse
