Subject: Application for position of ESL Teacher
Dear Mrs. Knutson,
My name is Virgil Casey, and I would like to take the opportunity today to apply with much interest in your ESL Teacher position at New Brunswick Public School. Thank you for this attention, and for taking a look at the enclosed resume and cover letter.
While attending college for a Master’s Degree in ESL Education, I worked part-time as an ESL Teacher Assistant at Franklin Public School in Franklin, MA; and from this experience, gained a lot of valuable insight and knowledge into a successful role as a ESL Teacher. It was here that I realized the need for my expertise and lessons was great, and that I wanted to work in an urban environment. I believe that working in a school such as New Brunswick Public School will be a very fulfilling job. I know that both my career and your school’s curriculum could be benefited by such an employment. I love teaching, love kids, and have the patience and skills to teach them English as a second language.
I look forward to a possible meeting, and thank you for your attention in reviewing this cover letter and resume. I eagerly await your response.
