Dear Dr. Hireme:
I am writing to apply for the elementary teaching position which was advertised in Career Services at
the University of Pennsylvania. In August I will graduate from the University of Pennsylvania with my
Master of Science degree in Elementary Education. As suggested by your assistant, Pat Smith, I have
enclosed my resume and a completed application form; letters of recommendation and transcripts are
being forwarded from the respective university offices.
As you will note in my enclosed resume, I have extensive teaching experience, both in and out of the
classroom. Currently I am teaching kindergarten at Merion Elementary School which has a whole
language philosophy. Last month I developed and implemented a four-week interdisciplinary thematic unit
on Russia and a four-week literature study on poetry. With excellent evaluations from my cooperating
teacher, I will assume full teaching responsibilities for two weeks at the end of this month.
My teaching experience is not limited to the classroom as my roles extend to tutor, theater/music director
and volunteer big sister. These experiences have not only enhanced my teaching ability, but have also
confirmed my passion for the profession. I am eager to continue my career and would be delighted to
join Chester County Public Schools. Your county-wide commitment to a whole language philosophy and
your high level of parental and community involvement makes me extremely interested in your district.
Please give my application careful consideration.
Thank you for your time and attention. I look forward to hearing from you.
