Teacher cover letter for a job application

Joan May, Principal
Benjamin Franklin High School
5432 Market Street
Bigcity, NY 75428
Dear Joan May,
Your ad in The Daily News recently caught my interest. I would appreciate it if you would take the time to read through my employment package to see what makes me the right person for the job.
Throughout my seven years of teaching, I have worked in many different settings. I held a job as an English Literature teacher in Philadelphia for four years, and prior to that I worked as a English Composition teacher in Chicago, Illinois. Both of these schools were located in a section of town where the dropout rate was alarmingly high and the students had to be searched before entering the school. I am proud to say that through a lot of hard work and extra time spent tailoring to the students specific situations, only two of my students have dropped out.
While pursing my teaching degree at Pennsylvania State University, I complete my student teaching requirements at a nearby school.
I noticed that your school is also suffering from a high dropout rate, 65% to be exact. I know your ad mentioned that you need teachers who can get the students interested in school again. If youll let me, I would like to try to make that percentage much smaller. With the help of the other teachers, the parents, and of course, the school administrators, there is no reason why we cant get these kids excited about learning again.
Please consider what I have offered in this letter. I hope that you will let me try my methods on these students, and together we can change their lives.
Please contact me via the phone number or email address found on my attached resume. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If I do not hear from you within two weeks, I will contact your office for an inquiry.

Jon Smith, Principal
Jefferson Junior High
123 Beech Street
Smalltown, PA 19566
Dear Mr. Smith,
I learned about a job opening that you have at Jefferson Junior High through a friend of mine who works in your administration office. Please let me explain to you why I am right for the job, and why the job is right for me.
Ive been teaching at the elementary level in the United States for almost four years. Before that, I was doing volunteer work teaching English to young children in Iran. My experiences at both of these jobs have given me insight into who I am as a teacher and what children need to learn effectively. These situations have proven that I can perform in a variety of educational settings.
I also try to teach my students that there is more to living than school. Once a week, I try to take my classes outside and do something fun. The students have learned that being healthy and fit goes a long way in being successful in school.
The sense of being a part of a team is also a valuable lesson that I have learned through my years of teaching. I know that without my administrators, fellow teachers, and parents, my job would be much harder.
I hope you will accept this letter and consider me for employment at Jefferson Junior High. If I am chosen, I promise to bring fitness and life back into the classroom, while still maintaining a high level of academic excellence.
If you are interested in learning more about me, please do not hesitate to call. Thank you for taking the time to read this and the attached resume. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
