The following sample is a Teacher Resume Cover Letter, but it's not the traditional cover letter you may be expecting.
This example describes a person who doesn't quite fit what the employer is looking for.
But in today's tight job market, who does?
Counselors are applying for maintenance positions, teachers for counselor positions and so forth and so on.
If you're wanting to get into the education field, trying your hand and teaching America's youth, this might be just the template you need
Having a good cover letter can make all the difference with the first impressions.
Dear Mr. [insert name];
I am a retired army veteran with a life long interest in teaching high school students, and am seeking a job that will lead to a fulfilling career in education. I recently saw an ad in the Sunday Edition of the Times Union for a 10th grade math teacher and am submitting my resume for consideration for that position.
My teaching experience is mostly limited to teaching math in community education programs to mostly young adults, but many of them were only a few years older than 10th graders. That experience, plus my ability to deal with potentially stressful situations with a great deal of calm is another asset that I bring to the position.
I am an optimist who thrives on challenges, a team player who is also capable of leading by example.. If your faculty could benefit from someone these attributes you owe it to yourself to consider me. For your consideration you can call me at [phone number] if you have any questions about my interest, availability, or qualifications.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
