Dear Mr. Ryatt:
I found your listing on the Nebraska School District website seeking a Media Specialist for the Media Department of St. Thomas Aquinas High School. With great enthusiasm, I would like to submit my candidacy for this position at this time.
In reviewing the requirements and preferred qualifications in this job posting, I found that I had all that you were looking for: “experience with media relations, various media platforms, and educational background”. To these requirements, I have over five years teaching as a Media Professional in a technical school setting; and have taught everything from introduction to media to advanced concentrations in this field with success.
In my previous and present positions as a Media Specialist and Professional, I have often been commended for my ability to connect with the students and get them interested in my discipline; as well as having won awards for helping students produce quality films that have gone on to win awards at regional contests and competitions. My purpose as an educator has always been to provide my students with all the components of Media to learn and be inspired by the subject. In doing so, I promote participatory learning according to various interests within the general topic of Media for all students; and seek to foster an enthusiasm for creating Media in all forms, genres, and purposes. I would like to offer this maxim and my experience to the curriculum of St Thomas Aquinas High School as your Media Specialist.
If you’d like to meet to discuss my qualifications and also what you look for in media specialists, please call me at (555)-555-5555 to do so. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you more about the position, and what I can offer the Media Department at St Thomas Aquinas High School.
Thanks so much for your time.
