XXXX School District

Atlantic City, NJ 08401
To Whom It May Concern:
I am interested in applying for an elementary teaching position in the XXXX School District. As a 2005 graduate of Douglass College at Rutgers University, I have recently become interested in the field of education.
As of today, I do not have extensive teaching experience, but entering the teaching field is something that I am passionate about. During my college career, I’ve taken two courses that helped me a great deal. These courses were Exploring Teaching as a Profession and Infant and Child Psychology. In these courses, I learned some of the essentials of teaching such as lesson planning and classroom management. Also, as a former student in the Atlantic City School District during my own elementary school years, I feel that teaching would be an excellent opportunity for me to give back to the community. Because I do not have teaching experience, I would be more than willing to enter the field as a substitute teacher or in any other type of temporary teaching position.
It is my professional goal to become a compassionate and inspirational educator to my future students and my fellow teachers. I intend to make a positive contribution to the community and the Atlantic City School District. I would welcome an interview and hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
I recently typed up this quick cover letter. there are probably tons of errors. but if there is anyone who could reply and help me spruce up this cover letter, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced
