Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I was excited to learn about the opening for [Position] on the San Jose Unified School District job board. Having substituted for over 20 different classes at Carolyn A. Clark Elementary and Los Alamitos Elementary, I believe my teaching experience and passion for education make me an ideal candidate for the position. In fact, in recognition of my teaching contributions, I was awarded Employee of the Month at Carolyn Clark Elementary in June 2018.
Besides receiving this award, a few noteworthy highlights from my past work experiences include:
- Helping underperforming students improve literacy targets by 20%
- Introducing SMART board best teaching practices to regular, full-time teachers
- Serving as an assistant coach for girls’ basketball and track teams
San Jose Unified School District students deserve educators who are committed to their personal and academic growth. With my enthusiasm for teaching and experience substituting for both homerooms and special areas, I am confident in my ability to positively impact San Jose’s school community.
I’ve enclosed my resume for further review. Thank you for your time and consideration—I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you and learn more about the role.
