Dear Mr. Williams,

I have long been inspired by the innovative teaching methods at Alberts Elementary School, and therefore was thrilled to see an opening for a Teacher’s Aide position at your reputed institution. While reading about the opening, I found that the school’s desired qualities resonated with my interests and career goals. Hence, I am confident that my skills and qualifications would make a positive contribution to your school.

While completing an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education at Cliff City Community College, I worked part-time as a camp counselor. Consequently, it gave me the opportunity to practice implementing the teaching methods I was learning in school.

As I have learned, your school values positive encouragement, and personalized instruction for every child. Likewise, I place a lot of importance to their development and learning. Having a positive, personable attitude, gives me a great understanding of children’s needs. In fact, it helps me create a good classroom atmosphere using positive reinforcement techniques.

Additionally, I would be very enthusiastic about helping Alberts Elementary School promote arts education. As I understand this has been one of the school’s priorities for the last decade. Being an artist myself and firmly believe in supporting students in their creative endeavors.

To summarize, if you feel that my background and skillset meet your current needs, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the position in greater detail. Thank you for your consideration.
