Dear Ms. Alvarado,
After just moving to your area, I was happy to see that you have an opening for an Instructional Aide at your school. I know that my ability to teach and to take direction from the instructor would be beneficial to the school. I have an enthusiasm for this position and a love for teaching that is unsurpassed.
For the past six years I have worked for one teacher but was forced to leave my position when my spouse was transferred to this area for work purposes. I bring a dedication to the job that the children and instructor find refreshing. I understand the demands that are placed on instructors with overcrowding in classrooms and I know that my help is always appreciated.
Educating our young children is one of the most important jobs in my opinion and I am happy and content each morning walking into a classroom knowing that I make a difference. There are not many professions that are as rewarding as this one. That is why I know that I would be a valued member of the team of teaching staff at your school.
I would appreciate the opportunity to further discuss with you my background. You can call this number (555)-555-5555 at any time or you can also email me at [email] to set up a time to meet.
