Dear Mr. Arthur,
I am writing to introduce myself as a candidate for the open school counselor position with Portland High School. My experience as a counselor is extremely strong, and I am passionate about providing guidance and assistance to young people in need. With Portland High School’s strong dedication to quality assistance for students, I believe that this is the perfect match for somebody with my skills.
I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and completed a master’s degree at that same school in 2012. Since then, I worked mostly as a counselor with social services before accepting a role as a school counselor at Walter Williams Memorial High School. Now that I have moved to the Portland area, I have a strong desire to continue this career path with a school that is clearly dedicated to providing the best possible support for children and adults alike. You will find me to be very motivated, compassionate, and dedicated to providing the best communication possible to students who need my services.
You can find my resume enclosed, and I can provide references upon request. If you have any questions about my resume or experience, please feel free to contact me via phone at (207) 785-8541 or by email at [email] Thank you very much for your time, and I hope to discuss this matter further with you in a face to face interview in the near future.
