Dear Ms. McKensie,


I have a very strong interest in persuading a teaching career. With experience working in both the elementary and high school levels, as well as activities outside of the traditional classroom, I have a diverse background with much to offer.

My first classroom experience was a volunteer elementary school religion teacher at a local church where I worked for three years during high-school. In addition, I worked for several summers at a Sunny Beach Arts Camp teaching theater, where I staged a play each season.

I have student teaching experience on the first and third grade level, in both suburban and urban school districts. I particularly working with “at-risk” children and careful prepared lessons allowed me to break down sometimes complicated concepts to simple examples that my young students can grasp.

Last year, while working in Milan, I taught English to high school students. Managing the difference between abilities among my students proved a difficult, but satisfying, challenge. I tailored activities to maintain the interest of high-level students without intimidating less skilled English speakers.

My Resume is enclosed. I will forward an official copy of my transcript along with references under separate cover. I will contact you next week to discuss employment opportunities. I look forward to speaking with you.


Thank you for your consideration.


Respectfully yours,

Annabelle Jones
