Subject: Application for position of Assistant Teacher
Dear Mr. Hays,
I wish to apply for the position of Assistant Teacher as advertised. I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this post, as well as the necessary experience. I therefore believe that what I have to offer to Birchwood Nursery School will be of great benefit to the company.
I have a B.S in Maths awarded by University of California, Berkeley, CA. I also have 6 years experience working in the role of an Assistant Teacher at Walker School, Needham, MA.
I have a natural rapport with children and have the ability to make children at ease. I thoroughly enjoy the company of children and find that teaching them comes naturally and easily to me. Children seem to like my style as well, and I have had no complaints in that area.
I understand the school curriculum as it stands and I have no difficulty following it with children. I am a well organized person who finds it easy to prepare the learning environment. I fully understand the need to keep parents fully informed at all times everything that is pertinent to their child’s education.
I have extensive experience in maintaining the records of pupils and carrying out normal administrative tasks on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I can assist in the assessment analysis of the progress of pupils, and I know how to plan learning activities and help develop support materials with teachers.
I feel sure that my proven ability to manage and maintain the highest standards as an Assistant Teacher will be of the greatest benefit to Birchwood Nursery School, and I have confidence that I can make a significant contribution to the school.
I may be contacted at (666)-623-2360, or by email at email@example.com. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you at interview level, and I thank you for the opportunity to be considered for the post of Assistant Teacher.
