Dear Ms. Jackson,
I am writing to apply for the position of School Principal with Henderson International School.
Being a principal of any school is a huge responsibility but my five years of working as an assistant principal has prepared me for this job. I have learned over the last few years that patience and strong nerves is a requirement of this position. Each day is a new challenge and you never really know what to expect but I have the skills and training to meet these challenges head on and to ensure the school is run in a safe and efficient manner.
I fully understand the responsibilities of this position and that I will be held accountable for my actions as well as those of my staff. I have outstanding leadership skills and integrity that I believe will help to motivate and inspire the students and staff in a positive way.
I believe in treating everyone equal and fairly and I have the ability to communicate with students, staff and the community in an effective manner. In addition, I am familiar with creating a budget and determining which departments need the funding the most. My previous experience will help me determine what strengths and weaknesses your school has and my knowledge and training will help find ways to improve areas that need attention.
I have the vision and skills needed to meet or exceed the state and national curricular standards. I am confident that you will find my experience, training and reputation to be sufficient for this position and I hope to meet with you soon.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview.
