January 13,2014 Mr. John Doe Smithfield Elementary School Main Street Smithfield, CA 08055 Dear Mr. Doe, I am interested in applying for a teaching position, on the secondary level, in your school. At the present time I am teaching “at risk” preschool children. This position enables me to provide these students with a “head start” in mastering basic skills. I am challenged to be creative, nurturing and most of all, patient. In my junior year at XXX College, a passion for and knowledge of horses created an opportunity for me work for the Racing Museum. This position allowed me to teach every fourth grade class in the local school system. I coordinated field trips with classroom instruction. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent teacher who will make a positive contribution to your school district. I would welcome an interview and hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience. Sincerely, Signature (hard copy letter) FirstName LastName I have a very strong interest in pursuing a teaching career. With experience working at both the elementary and high school levels, as well as in activities outside of the traditional classroom, I have a diverse background with much to offer. My first classroom teaching experience was as a volunteer elementary school religion teacher at a local church where I worked for three years during high-school. In addition, I worked for several summers at a Sunny Beaches Arts Camp teaching theater, where I staged a play each season. I have student teaching experience on the first and third grade level, in both suburban and urban school districts. I particularly enjoyed working with "at-risk" children and careful preparation of lessons allowed me to break down sometimes complicated concepts to simple examples that my young students could grasp.
