Dear Ms. Stevens,
I am writing to submit my candidacy for the versatile and talented English Teacher position advertised in Swansey Daily News, as I have all the levels of talent, versatility, and patience required to be a thorough and effective educator. Beyond just answering to the requests for a teacher that offers compassion, computer skills, various teaching methods/ideas, and commitment to student learning; I offer my 20 years as an educator of both middle and high school students with an enthusiasm that has never dimmed in that time.
At present, I am employed as English Teacher at Swansey Elementary School, and the details of your ad mirror the very functions, skills, and roles that I am responsible for here. My fellow colleagues, the Board, as well as the Principal will attest to my educating standards and skills.
I am presently affiliated with a highly regarded private elementary school. Mr. Craig, the headmaster, will certainly give you a good reference. The details of your advertisement suggest to me that the position will involve many of the same responsibilities that I am currently performing.
These are but a few of the qualifications that I bring to the position that you are hiring for at Swansey Private School, and I would love the opportunity to discuss my career history further with you. I will call next week so that we might schedule a time just for this. Thank you so much for your time.
