    First time poster! A little about me--Alt. certified. Mid 40's. Lots of sub and tutor experience. Actively, aggressively looking for one year.

    I am now beginning to send out resumes/covers to every school in my district. For some reason, I am stumped on what to say in my cover to the elementary I attended. This has to be a little plus right even though it was maaaannny years ago?? Of course, none of the same admin or teachers or there so I don't have any contacts.

    All I can come up with is something about great memories at B.H. Elementary... blah, blah..

    Please help me figure out how to word this. Thanks!

    "I am a product of this school and can attribute my achievements to the outstanding educational foundation I received here."

    When I send my cover letter to my former elementary school, I put:
    As an alumnus of PS 00, I will be committed to providing my students with the same exceptional education that I received at your school.

    If you choose to mention it, it should be brief. A portion of a sentence that has some relation to your skills.

    I'd either just briefly mention being an alum of the school, or saying something like I feel my experience of growing up in the area and attending the school make me a unique candidate for the school.
