Dear Selection Committee,

I am making an application for a full time teaching position within your school. I am qualified to teach the Primary and Junior divisions upon graduating from Nipissing University’s Bachelor of Education program in June. I have also completed an Additional Qualification in the Intermediate division, and am qualified to teach grades K- 10.

As you will notice on my résumé, for many years I have tried to choose experiences that will assist me in a teaching career. Each experience has exposed me to new and different teaching situations. My placement with Section 20 at the Clinton Public School, as a teaching assistant, offered me understanding of how important it is to educate every student. With this experience I saw the need for dedicated special education teachers and how important they are in the lives of children. With that said, I am currently working towards the completion of Special Education Specialist, Part 1.

I am the best candidate for a teaching position as I am passionately committed and capable to teach across the curriculum, to all learners. Being in a technology-based program, I see the importance for stimulating and engaging lessons to address the multiple intelligences in my classroom. As an educator, my ultimate goal is to inspire every child to believe and achieve in themselves and each other. I have volunteered with the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. I am currently employed at a childcare facility with a before and after school program. Through all my experience, I have worked with many youth that had behaviour difficulties, learning disabilities and English language learners. I believe it is important to use a variety of methods in order to meet the different learning styles of each student. If a student is set up for success they will enjoy the learning experience much more, and have a passion for knowledge that will stay with them for years to come. A teachers’ passion is to create a lifelong learner in each student. I currently work at a before and after school daycare providing programming to students prior to and after school.

Thank you for considering me for the position. I encourage you to contact my references. I believe I am the right candidate for a teaching position because I will create a positive and interactive learning atmosphere. I would be pleased to respond to any further questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me by telephone at (number hidden).

Sincerely,

Meghan Moore
