Dear Mr Gebel,
As an admirer of Johnson Memorial Grammar School, I was really excited to see your posting for a 3rd grade teacher. Here’s why I’m an excellent match for the position.
In addition to having a Masters in Education and seven years experience, I currently work as an enthusiastic 3rd grade teacher at the Red Barn School. In this role I am responsible for 40 students in an inclusion classroom, which has allowed me to refine my skills handling extreme behavioral issues, while maintaining a focused class. I also prepare the children for the challenging state tests and foster their leadership and problem-solving skills by having them collaborate in groups.
Additionally, my attached resume includes all of the other requirements given on your job listing. For this reason, I believe I would be a great addition to your organization.
I will make myself available to meet with you at your earliest convenience.
