Subject: Application for position of Elementary School Teacher
Dear Mrs. Garcia,
I write to introduce myself, Matthew Walker for the advertised position of Elementary School Teacher at Denver Public School. I have also enclosed my resume along with this cover letter with more details on my background for this opportunity at Denver Public Schools.
Over the past six years of my career as an Elementary School Teacher at Charles City Comm School District, I have taught grades 1-3 in general curriculum to include Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Music, and Art. My classrooms have generally been filled by 25 students per class, and work one on one with students as each one show signs of interest or needing assistance in a discipline. I am patient, promote a very interactive and supportive learning environment, and work well as a part of a school team. I believe in being in constant dialogue with students, their parents, the school board, and principal to ensure that the optimum teaching is being offered these students. I also offer a Master’s Degree in Elementary School Education from Grand Valley State University.
I ask that you review this cover letter and resume at your convenience to learn more about my background. Thanks so much for your time and consideration today, and also for the opportunity to apply.
