I would love and appreciate some feedback on the content of my cover letter! Thanks! I am applying for an elementary teaching position in the Enfield Public School District. As a 2006 graduate of Westfield State College, I have student teaching experience in first grade and prepracticum experience in grades three and four. In addition to my undergraduate teaching experience, I have been a per diem substitute teacher for the Enfield Public School System since the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year. During this time, I was also asked to be a long term substitute first grade teacher. I spent approximately four months teaching twenty first graders at Henry Barnard Elementary School. This placement solidified my hopes of one day becoming a teacher for your district. My main reason for wanting to teach in one of Enfield’s public schools is because I grew up in Enfield. I attended Enfield schools for my pre-collegiate education, and would love nothing more than being a part of the fine district that has helped shaped me into the person I am today. Giving back to the community and schools that fostered my growth and development would be an honor. It is my goal to combine my experience as a teacher with my passion for teaching, understanding nature, and intelligence in order to make a positive and lasting contribution to the Enfield Public School District. I would welcome an interview with you at your earliest convenience. I hope to hear from you soon.
