Dear Ms Wilson
Re: Year 5 Teacher, Ref no 1234
I wish to apply for the above Year 5 teaching position at your school as advertised on the Teaching Jobs website.
I have an Education degree (Primary) from Western City University and have been teaching for the past three years at St Lawrence Primary College in Smithsfield.
As a teacher, my main goal is to motivate students to do their best and extend their own personal limits. I devise programs, according to syllabus requirements, that expand on previous knowledge and encourage students to explore new and interesting possibilities. I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps students to realise their full potential. I have had some excellent results with students who have a history of poor performance. I strive to instil a love of learning and to make learning exciting and interesting. One student who had difficulties with English is now reading aloud with confidence and is enjoying reading for pleasure.
I am confident that my experience and skills will be an asset to your students' learning and development and would love the opportunity to work at your school.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you and discussing how I can contribute to your school community and objectives.
