Subject: Application for position of Teacher Aide
Dear Mrs. Gibson,
I am seeking a position as a Teacher Aide that will offer me the challenges of a prep school environment along with the potential for growth. I have often heard great things about Liverpool High School and for this reason, I am enclosing a resume with this cover letter for consideration of your Teacher Aide position advertised recently.
When I came across your opportunity at Liverpool High School I knew I had found the right Teacher Aide position for my career, as I have admired your school services, curriculum, and environment for quite some time. I also have all of the experience and skills that you are seeking in a multi-tasking and enthusiastic Teacher Aide for your Science department-as I have a Master’s Degree in Science Education from Claremont McKenna College, and an internship from Lassen High School as a Teacher’s Assistant which lasted two years during college. I love teaching, can assist in any curriculum and activity planning needs and implementation, and have loads of patience.
For all of these reasons, I know I would make an exceptional choice for your Teacher Aide position at Liverpool High School. Thanks for taking the time to see this cover letter and resume.
