Dear Vivian:

As a successful reading specialist who has achieved many targets over the years owing to exceptional insight into creating and implementing dedicated and age-appropriate reading programs for students, I am positive that my profile will greatly interest you. Perhaps my greatest accomplishment has been actively incorporating Bookflix into regular reading programs which led to a 75% increase in students willingly opting for enrolling into advanced reading modules.

Furthermore, you will discover from my profile that I am dedicated to incorporating novel methodologies of reading, and have successfully tweaked my reading programs to meet the diverse needs of students with dyslexia and other limitations. It would perhaps be prudent to mention here that I am the person behind the concept of Library on Wheels, which has created a positive uproar in the city, especially amongst children who have just been introduced to reading!

Confident that I can provide great leadership in forwarding your school’s vision, I would like to meet with you in person and discuss this further. I will call you soon to see if you have a time slot free in your schedule. Should you need to contact me, please feel free to do so at (000) 123-2122.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Mr Johnson:

This letter expresses my sincere intent to be the next Special Education program manager for Sweetwater Union High School District. I am confident that my professional qualifications meet and exceed those demanded of this position. More importantly, I am a patient and a flexible team player, yet firm in my communications and decisions. These qualifications make me ideally suited to work in this multi-faceted environment.

After my first year of teaching, it was very clear that I had a special bond with kids that have emotional and behavioral issues. Teaching them comes naturally to me and gives me a deep sense of personal satisfaction. As a disciplinarian, coach and tutor, I open up in this setting. Undeniably, watching students make improvements and sharing positive praise with parents are my most rewarding moments of teaching.

My experience as a Special Education Teacher is what will ensure my success as program manager. I have worked with a diverse range of emotional, physical and cultural backgrounds and often consider myself a de facto site psychologist. More importantly, because of my history in the classroom, I connect well with parents. I am able to relate to all circumstances because I am rarely shocked. Rather than become emotional, I take a proactive problem solving approach. Through this strong relationship with parents, I recognize quickly the accuracy and efficacy of assessments.

The recent completion of my administrative credentialing also makes me an ideal candidate for this job. I am readily aware of the procedures and guidelines set forth by IDEA, as well as other codes and regulations, and relevant testing and assessment models shaping the way we educate today. My belief is that when we, as educators and administrators, are competent and confident, everyone walks away happy.

In addition to teaching, I provide behavioral consultant services to other district schools, assess instructional programs, conduct trainings and work collaboratively with teachers, parents, aides and support staff. In this capacity, I have gained a broader understanding for how public and non-public districts interact to best serve the needs of students. Working between districts has also granted me a big-picture perspective that I believe will help manage Sweetwater Union High School Districts budget. I intend to bring superb mediation and communication skills to the table that will ultimately save money and protect the rights of all parties.

I am a true lifelong learner. I love to teach and learn, especially from kids. As such, I was especially excited to be recently nominated and awarded an ABA Certification scholarship and intend to start courses as soon as possible. This designation will further enhance my ability to be a bridge between special education students and the successful academic careers they deserve.

While I recognize that I do thrive in the classroom, I am ready to move forward into a management position where I can serve many more young people with special needs, ensuring they receive the best services available to them. I have dedicated my career to the Sweetwater district and I intend to continue to bring a higher level of competency to the special education program. I can and will get the job done.

Very Sincerely,

Dear Louis:

Ever since I started teaching at the elementary school level, I have been passionate in my commitment to three things: maximizing individual student performance, inspiring students’ interest in technology and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students. I have dedicated my career to each of these pursuits, as my enclosed resume will attest.

That’s why I was excited to see the advertisement on Monster for an elementary teacher in your district. ABC Public Schools has earned a positive reputation for celebrating diversity, achieving academic excellence and using technology as a learning tool. It would be an honor to teach your students and serve a district that maintains high educational standards and provides students with opportunities for personal growth.

My qualifications include 12 years of elementary teaching experience, MEd and BS degrees in elementary education, and a current senior professional educator (middle childhood) license in the state of Ohio.

In my most recent position as elementary educator for DEF Public School District, I developed and taught 4th and 5th grade curricula. For more than 10 years, I provided effective classroom management, creative lesson plans, detailed student evaluations and highly praised instructional delivery. As an enthusiastic volunteer, I founded and grew the school’s after-school technology club, an innovative program that covered diverse technology areas — from Internet security best practices to PowerPoint tutorials. The program became so popular that it was the school’s only after-school program that was consistently filled to capacity.

Although I enjoyed my tenure at DEF Public School District, my position was eliminated last May following a round of layoffs. I am eager to resume my teaching career and would be delighted to interview for this opportunity. Please feel free to contact me at 000-000-0000 or email natalia@somedomain.com to set up a meeting.

Thank you for your interest and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
