Dear Miss. Guzar or Dear Selection Committee
As a student currently enrolled in the primary-junior program in the Faculty of Education at Nipissing University, I anticipate the day when I can apply all that I have learned within a classroom environment. With each opportunity that I have been given to practice my teaching skills, I become more excited about my first teaching position. It is for this reason that I write to you, with the hopes of attaining a teaching position with the Grand Erie District School Board.
For many years my work experience has been completed while keeping a career in teaching in mind. Each experience has exposed me to innovative and challenging teaching situations, and at the same time, further introduced me to wonderful opportunities such as special education. My summer with Camp Kennebec offered me a great deal of experience within the field of special education, and opened my eyes to the challenges, needs, and motivation that is behind each one of those amazing children. With this experience, I saw the need to continue my professional training in the area of special education. Camp Kennebec also exposed me to a variety of teaching situations, which I believe would be an asset to your Board
The Grand Erie District School Board is of particular interest to me because as a student within the board your teachers encouraged, nurtured, and pushed me to become the best individual that I could become. Not only that, but now I can look back and state that they have much to offer as role models for teaching. My teaching placements within the Grand Erie District School Board have led me to admire this effective team of committed teachers.
In addition to my competence in the core subject areas, I offer a strong background in the Arts, particularly fine art, and drama. I look forward to participating in all aspects of school life.
Thank you for considering my resume. I hope it has convinced you that I am a suitable candidate for one of your teaching positions. Please feel free to contact my references, and I would be pleased to respond to any further questions that you may have. I can be reached by phone at: (705) 845-5183
