Dear Ms. Anderson:
Please accept my letter of application for the position of mathematics teacher at New Horizon High School. With my major in mathematics and secondary teaching certificate, I am particularly interested in utilizing my skills and knowledge in a secondary setting.
My student teaching experience has enabled me to develop a special rapport with the age group that I enjoy most: high school students. As co-advisor of the Computer Club during my practicum, I also gained administrative and organizational skills that enhanced my perspective and my commitment to the extra-curricular component of the secondary school experience.
As a student at Boston College, I have excelled academically and worked part-time as an aide at the computer center, where I further developed my interpersonal and communication skills.
I am especially interested in the New Horizon School District because of its demonstrated commitment to quality education, as evidenced by the favorable student/faculty ratio and state-of-the-art classroom technology. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you regarding the Mathematics Department position. Thank you for your consideration. I will contact you within the next two weeks.
