Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Green county school
Dear Dr. Johnson:
Please accept this letter of application for the fourth grade instructional position that is currently available in the Green County School System. I learned of the opening through a notice posted on the Rollins College, Office of Career Services website. I am confident that my academic background and curriculum development skills would be successfully utilized in this teaching position.
I have just completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and am eligible for the State of Florida Teacher Certification in Elementary Education (K-6). During my comprehensive student teaching internship, I developed and initiated a three-week curriculum sequence on animal species and earth resources. This collaborative unit involved working with three other third grade teachers within my team, and culminated in a field trip to Sea World’s Animal Research Unit.
In my work with the third grade classes, I stressed critical thinking and the incorporation of mathematical and science units into the course. The student response was very encouraging, as we had a 100% passing rate for this section. In addition, our team met state curricula guidelines and received numerous positive calls from students’ families regarding the class material. Both my cooperating teacher and my supervisor from the teacher preparation program complimented me on my enthusiastic classroom presentations.
Please consider this resume as an expression of my sincere interest in pursuing any fourth grade vacancies that may arise in your district. I will create a productive learning environment that is student-centered. If you have any questions, I may be reached at email@example.com or (407) 555-2195. I welcome the opportunity to interview for a position with the Green County School District. Thank you for your consideration.
