Dear Ms. Tenner,
I am very interested in applying for a teaching position in the Sarasota school district, in the middle school grade level. Having recently graduate Florida State College with a Masters in Teaching, I offer a stellar educational background, as well as experience student teaching for the past two years at Miami High School.
At present, I am working at Miami High Schools, student teaching for a number of subjects to include English and College Writing. Though I thoroughly enjoy my students, the broad range of curriculum, and fellow staff-I am looking to both focus my talents and experience on a middle school level, as well as find a position that will challenge me. I look to Sarasota Middle School for this opportunity.
It is my ultimate goal to combine my teaching experience with my passion for opening and help develop young minds-so that they can move forward as stronger, more defined individuals ready to take on the world. I know I would make a positive contribution to your school district at the middle school level, and would love the opportunity to discuss why further. Please let me know when you might be available for an interview. The best way to contact me is at: (555)-555-5555.
Thanks so much for your time.
