Children represent our future, and nothing could be more rewarding to me both professionally and personally than to play an active role in helping the develop both academically and as productive members of society.  As a highly qualified educator, I see the perfect opportunity to realize this goal. 

along with my background in Alternative Secondary Education, I have acuired experience working with children of all ages in a variety of learning arenas. 

My approach as a teacher is to develop a structured, fair, and challenging environment with a variety of differentiated and engaging activities. 

After you have reviewed my credentials, I would welcome a personal interview to discuss my qualiifications in greater detail.  I offer the necessary training, dedication, and personal qualities to serve as an excellent educator in assisting your school district with meeting its objective. 

Thank you for your consideration.  I look forward to our conversation.
