Dear Ms. Goddard:
I am a first year student at Smith College pleased to submit my application for a teacher/coach
position with the 2016 REAL Kids/Harlem RBI summer program which I saw in our career center
internship database. With strong interests in youth development and team sports, I am drawn to
this position as an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of inner city youth.
I have extensive experience working with children in athletic and arts settings. As Assistant Coach
of the Marion County Youth Softball League, I designed non competitive beginner practices that
motivated each player to strive for her personal best. As the girls’ skill level, self esteem, and
teamwork grew, several reported having greater success in school. Previously, as Arts Leader for
Fine Arts for Kids in Miami, I taught arts and crafts to Hispanic youth and initiated cost free
activities that enriched their appreciation of art. As public schools are increasingly cutting funding
for arts and sports programs, I am eager to help close the gap for these children however I can.
As a teacher/coach with REAL Kids/Harlem RBI I hope to share with my students the important
lessons about teamwork, leadership, and motivation I’ve learned from softball. I owe my academic
success in large part to the committed coaches I had since joining my first softball team at age six.
I am excited by the prospect of inspiring your students to play, learn, and grow this summer.
I am available at your convenience for an in person or phone interview, and I look forward to
hearing from you soon.
