Dear Ms. Brown,

I am writing to express my interest in the teaching position advertised on [Website] under section [‘Careers At’]. During my voluntary service at [Public School Y] I heard about [School X], and I am convinced that my extra set of hands can fill the gap of unfilled teaching posts. In this cover letter, I will elaborate on my motivation and qualifications required for this vacancy.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Name], and I have 2 years of experience as a substitute teacher at the elementary school in [City]. Since several months I moved to [City], and therefore seeking a job as an elementary teacher in your district. I was pleased when reading the job advertisement, because I know that [Public School X] is recognised for student diversity, achieving academic excellence and digital learning. I notice the complexity of the current educational landscape, but the ambition to help students achieve their goals, never gets old. As a substitute teacher I found my passion and commitment to teaching have grown over the years.

During my third-year at the [University] of [City] I gained my first teaching experience for 4th and 5th grades. According to my ex-employers, see references, I was highly praised for detailed lesson plans and instructional PowerPoint tutorials. My study program received recognition and was therefore adopted in the school’s educational program. In addition, I got the opportunity to present the program at the National Federation of Teachers. Since then, I used my expertise and enthusiasm for daily teaching at [School Y].

While my attached resume will give you an outline of my abilities, I would be interested to further elaborate on how I can contribute to the educational program at [Public School Y] in a personal meeting. Please feel free to contact me at [Phone number] or via [E-mail address]. Thank you for your interest and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

[Name Surname]
