OK, here's another cover letter that could use some tweaking. I tried using some strategies from the eBook, we'll see how it goes. background: this is a private school, the website and posting refer to curriculum differentiation, team player, multiple learning styles, etc. I tried to include all of this to show I've done my homework. This is going to be e-mailed so it gets to her first thing. I'm not sure I like the third paragraph, and is the PS too bold? Also, should I email this as the body of the email and then attach my resume or do it some other method? Thanks, guys. ***** August 6, 2006 (name) **** Elementary School **** Rd (city, state, etc) Immediately Available Experienced Team Player for Chesterbrook Elementary Dear Ms. ***, I was delighted to find the posting for a second grade teacher at *** Elementary for this upcoming school year. I have experience with second grade, and love both the age and the curriculum. As you can see from my attached resume, I have a wide variety of experiences with students of varying ages and ability levels. I look forward to using these skills within your school. Although my most recent experience has been with preschool special education students, I have learned many skills that are easily transferable to elementary grades. Differentiating curriculum for each student in my class is something that comes naturally, whether or not a particular child has a documented need for specific accommodations. I enjoy the challenge of using multiple learning styles to help each child develop in their own unique way. I believe literacy and integrated curriculums are crucial components to a quality education, particularly at the primary level. I also believe in the value of small class sizes and parental involvement. *** would be a perfect fit for me! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon regarding this position. Sincerely, Emily ** (phone) (email) P.S. As requested, I have attached my resume. Please let me know what additional information I should bring when I meet with you.
