In my area, principals' will not accept paper applications or phone calls. Principals' will accept online applications though, if fact this is the only form of communication they will accept. My question is who has had luck with contacting principals' via email? Most importantly how did you do this? Did you send a nice email that would tell them everything they want to hear (kiss ass a bit). Are people sending cover letters or resumes in the body of their email, perhaps as a text only document so that the formatting is not lost? Since this is the only way I can contact principal's, I am wondering what is the best method to go about it. If I wait for them to contact me then I might as well change my career. The odds are so slim as teaching is soo competitive in my area. Thank you for reading this and hopefully suggesting ways to make my application stand out from the rest! Thank you!!
