Here is a new version of my cover letter. I tried to put me into the letter so that it would have that oomph factor. I did this quickly so I know there are some grammar mistakes but I want your opinion if the cover letter is attractive as in what I am saying. Dear Prospective Employer, I am applying for the first grade elementary position as advertised through the school district’s web site. I have six years experience working with children of all ages in which I have taught all the basic subjects. I have a Masters of Elementary Education degree and I am licensed to teach Pre-K through 5. I am a dedicated teacher who uses different instructional techniques to reach all my students. I also use different assessments to monitor each student’s progress. In order to make sure my students succeed, I provided after-school tutoring to help them comprehend the material. As a student teacher, I created unique and interesting lessons to reach all of my students. One unique lesson I had created was a math lesson that incorporated a token economy. In this lesson the students would earn money to buy pencils, crayons, erasers, and other items. On Fridays, students would go shopping. However, in order to buy the desired items the students had to count out the money to me. When Friday came around, the students were excited about going shopping and they were ready to count out the money because they had counted their money every day. . My proudest moment as a student teacher was when a low-level reader, Ja’Von, made improvements in his reading. Due to the fact that Ja’Von was a low-level reader, Ja’Von never wanted to read. To help him become a better reader, I would tutor him after school. When Ja’Von lost his tooth I read Junie B., First Grader: Toothless Wonder to the class and it was then that Ja’Von became interested in reading. He was able to identify with a student losing her tooth and that connection made him take out all of the Junie B Jones’ books. He would read these books during his spare time and he would read the books aloud to me. By the time I was done with my student teaching, he would read aloud in class and he was no longer a low-level reader. Ja’Von had become an on-level reader. In closing, I have attached my resume and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to further discuss why I believe I would be a great addition to your school. I invite you to contact me at XXX-XXX-XXXX or at email , at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
