Dear [Mr./Ms./Mx.] [Hiring Manager’s Last Name],
I was delighted to learn of your opening for an English Teacher through my former colleague, Linda Brown. I first met Linda at Evergreen Academy where we worked closely to mentor students with behavioral challenges and eventually integrated a schoolwide mindfulness program.
I’m currently a teacher at the DREAM School and have 5+ years of experience teaching English Language Arts to students in 2nd through 6th grade. My experience in mentoring students and modernizing curriculum makes me an excellent candidate to support your school’s mission of fostering individual growth and curiosity through an exploratory curriculum.
My strong initiative and ability to cater to a diverse range of learners allow me to thrive in a challenging teaching environment. Specifically, some of my greatest professional successes include:
- Increasing reading levels by an average of 2 grade levels through engaging multiple modalities, creating fun reading challenges, and encouraging student-led reading
- Encouraging my students to be dreamers and lifelong learners with a personalized approach to teaching that instills confidence in their abilities and potential
I welcome the opportunity to personally discuss how my strengths can serve your students. I’m equally reachable at (123) 456-7890 or email@example.com to review my qualifications in greater detail.
