Dear Ms. Barre,
I am interested in applying for your open Kindergarten Teacher position, and have enclosed a current copy of my resume for your review.
As a 2005 of Rice University with a degree in Elementary Teaching, I offer a comprehensive curriculum and hands on experience in teaching young children. As a part of this program, I was required to assist teachers in both suburban and urban school districts teach and maintain students in Kindergarten, first, and second grades-helping with crafts, simple numbers and math instruction, music, and story times. I love working with children of this age, and I would love the opportunity to begin my career in educating youth with your school. I have heard a lot about your ongoing and already established programs for comprehensive introductory learning, and am impressed with what you offer your students. I have solid teaching and curriculum assessment experience, am a great mentor and communicator, and work well with young children.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for posting your need for a Kindergarten Teacher, and ask that you review my resume for consideration. Once you have, please give me a call at (555)-555-5555 to schedule a time to speak further. I very much look forward to speaking with you and touring your school.
