Dear London District Catholic School Board hiring manager,
I would like to apply for a position with the London district Catholic School Board as a supply staff starting May 1st, 2011. I am currently completing my B.Ed. in Education in the primary/Junior division from Nipissing University and have successfully completed a four year undergraduate degree in Child, Youth and family studies at the University of Guelph, Ontario. I have focused most of my volunteering and work experience with children ages 3- 12 with varying disabilities and have experience with varying cultural and religious backgrounds. I am extremely passionate about learning about, and promoting, cultural diversity during my teaching, work and volunteer experiences. I have also had the incredible experience of traveling to Dominican Republic, Italy as well as Kenya where I was able to fully engulf myself in the cultural traditions and experiences during my time there. These experiences have enabled me to understand the importance that structure, nurture, trust and most importantly, respect, has in a child’s life.
I have spent much time in the classroom during my 5 years of post-graduate schooling and believe that my background and experience will help me to positively impact both student and staff communities within the school. All students have the right to education and I am willing to invest my time and effort to help each individual attain personal success.
I believe that my experience and education will complement the philosophy and atmosphere of the School and I am eager to have the opportunity to use my resources to positively contribute to the School and staff community.
If you have questions, please feel free to call me at (519) 280-1463 or by email at email@example.com . I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Sara Van Aert
