Mr. John Doe
Smithfield Elementary School
Main Street
Smithfield, CA 08055

Dear Mr. Doe,

I would want to apply for a teaching position in your school system at the elementary level. I have third-, fourth-, and sixth-grade student teaching experience in both suburban and urban school districts. I am a 20XX alumnus of XXX College. I think that my enthusiasm for community involvement and my teaching background make me the best person to hold a teaching post at your school.

I’ve worked as an elementary school teacher in a number of environments. At the moment, I work as a third-grade teacher at a charter school in an inner city. I have also worked as an education coordinator at a nearby museum and have taught fourth grade in a small suburban school system. Given that your school prides itself on serving students from both inner-city and suburban areas, I believe my diverse background would be a valuable addition to your curriculum.

Involving students in the greater community is another goal of your school. I’ve had a lot of experience with community service initiatives in my teaching. For instance, I oversaw a third-grade class on plants while I was a student teacher, and we worked at a nearby community garden. Finding methods to include service learning into my lesson plans would be wonderful.

Combining my breadth of expertise with my aptitude as an enthusiastic, caring, and knowledgeable teacher will enable me to contribute positively to your school system and the community at large. I look forward to speaking with you as soon as possible and would be happy to do an interview.

Dear Dr. Smith:

I have been passionately committed to three goals since I began teaching in elementary school: enhancing each student’s performance on an individual basis, piqueing children’ interest in technology, and giving every student a sense of value. I have devoted my professional life to each of these endeavors, as my included resume will confirm.

I was thrilled to see the Monster job posting for an elementary teacher in your district for this reason. ABC Public Schools has a solid reputation for showcasing diversity, attaining academic success, and integrating technology into the classroom. Teaching your pupils and working for a district that upholds strong academic standards and gives students chances for personal development would be an honor.

In addition to my current Ohio senior professional educator (middle childhood) license, I hold an MEd and BS in elementary education. I also have 12 years of experience teaching in elementary schools.

In my most recent role, I created and instructed fourth and fifth grade courses for the DEF Public School District. I have been offering excellent classroom management, engaging lesson planning, thorough student evaluations, and well-received educational delivery for over a decade. I started and developed the school’s after-school technology club as a passionate volunteer. It was a cutting-edge program that covered a wide range of technological topics, from PowerPoint presentations to best practices for Internet security. The after-school program at the school grew so well-liked that it was the only one that was constantly full.

Despite my fond memories of my time at DEF Public School District, I lost my job in May of last year due to a round of layoffs. I would be thrilled to interview for this job since I am excited to start my teaching career again. To schedule a meeting, please call me at 216-555-5555 or send me an email at winifred@somedomain.com.

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