Dear Sir/Madam,

I am interested in applying for a teaching position. I am currently a Bachelor of Education student at Nipissing. I am qualified to teach intermediate/senior and my teachables are business accounting and information management.

My work experience has taught me that I have the necessary skills and interest to teach accounting. In addition, I have been exposed to accounting concepts and practical uses of computer systems that I was not taught as part of my Bachelor of Commerce studies. My employment as an accountant has given real world experiences in both teaching individuals and business accounting.

I believe that I have the abilities and the education to teach in your district. I appreciate your time and look forward to speaking with you.
