To whom it may concern,
Your advertisement for a teaching assistant fits my qualifications perfectly, and I am writing to express my interest in and enthusiasm for the position. My goal is to be a compassionate and enthusiastic English teacher while creating a challenging and fun learning environment for the students. The position posted is extremely ideal for my experience, skill and career interests. The preschool, kindergarten and elementary school age groups are what appeal to me the most. These age groups are like sponges, highly moldable. They are full of curiosity and interest in learning. The influence and impact that I could have on them will be lifelong and tremendous.
I believe that I am a good match for the position and will be a great asset to the school because of my student teaching experience in New Town University since freshman year. The experience I gained throughout the years help me to be more creative, patient and understanding. Through tutoring and helping students build confidence in their ability to achieve, I get great sense of accomplishment.
Thank you for your consideration. Enclosed is my resume for your review. I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you in person and discuss my credentials. I will follow up on this correspondence next week to address any question you may have and to schedule a time to meet at your convenience. In the meantime, if you have any question, please feel free to contact me at 722-999-4444.
