RE: 2008-2009 High School Chemistry Position
Dear Dr. xxxxxxxxxxxx:
I was rather excited when I saw that there was a high school chemistry position for next year. I called
________, who teaches social studies at Warwick, right away to see if he knew anything about the
position. He said it was a new position and that I would love it at Warwick. In March, my wife and I
moved from Columbia to Neffsville to get closer to the __________, where we have Guy’s son,
Trevor, in the junior high youth group. I had decided to stay at West York until graduate school was
over, but when my wife saw the job posted at Warwick, I could not pass up the opportunity to apply
for a position I could see myself keeping for the duration of my career.
I graduated from Manheim Central in 2001 with a 4.0 grade point average. I attended Bridgewater
College in Virginia where I also excelled. My position at West York was a permanent position, but I
was only able to teach chemistry for half of the day. I ran the gifted program at the middle school for
the remainder of the day. In 2007, I started teaching a full load of chemistry classes. I taught
Chemistry I, Chemistry in the Community, and sections of Chemistry in the Community for students
with learning disabilities.
In my free time, I participate in a wide range of activities. I am an assistant track and field coach for
the high school girls’ and boys’ teams. I am about half-way through the Master of Chemistry
Education Program at the University of Pennsylvania. I took inorganic chemistry, information
technology in chemistry, organic chemistry, and chemical education courses.
I appreciate your time in reviewing my résumé. To access my graduate school portfolio, go to the
website address above. My Pennsylvania profile and application may be viewed from the
PAEducator.net database. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of
further assistance. I look forward to hearing from you.
