Home Town, IL 60601
Dear Mr. Burns,
I’d like to put my commitment to education and my seven years experience in classroom teaching to work as a 4th-5th grade teacher at Home Town Elementary School.
As a 5th grade teacher at Burnside Elementary School in Springfield, I successfully developed and implemented a new math education program integrating multimedia support and self-paced learning modules. This program, which went on to receive statewide commendation from the Illinois Department of Public Instruction, could be a good match with your school’s educational goals, as identified in the Home Town School District Superintendent’s School Planning Report for 2009-2010.
I strive to create learning environments which motivate and inspire students, while providing them with the disciplined educational approach needed to establish a firm foundation for lifelong learning. I use frequent and varied assessment practices to ascertain each student’s level of development and monitor progress towards appropriate goals. Through weekly communication with families, I strengthen and increase parental involvement with their children’s education.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and am completing course work for my Master’s during the summer months. In addition, I have completed in-service training in Classroom Technology, Student Skill Assessment and Testing, 21st Century Curriculum Development and School/Community Integration.
I would like to schedule an appointment with you to learn more about your vision for Home Town Elementary School, and to tell you a bit more about my background. Please contact me at 615.432.1234 or [email protected] and let me know how to proceed. Thank you for your consideration.
