Application for School Principal

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a School Principal with three decades of leadership and teaching expertise in elementary, middle, and high school settings, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Principal of Sunnybank Elementary and Middle School in Dayton, OH, where I proactively promote a robust academic environment, integrate the latest technology to enhance learning and teaching delivery, and role model strong moral values for 850 students and 46 staff.

During my time at Sunnybank I have ensured the alignment of our CTE offerings, which has directly contributed to the significant increase in students completing pathways. I encourage a range of traditional and progressive methodology in the planning and delivery of instruction, with an emphasis on pedagogically-focused learning solutions that seamlessly integrate new technology and encourage an innovative use of resources to enhance student learning inside and outside the classroom.

Prior to Sunnybank, I held a number of increasingly-responsible leadership positions in several school districts throughout Ohio, including those of Middle School Principal and Director of Curriculum at high school level. In each of these roles, I sought to inculcate academic excellence, a supportive teaching environment, as well as a spirit of genuine community among students. 

I hold an MA in Educational Leadership and a BA in Elementary Education. To further develop the leadership aspect of my expertise in response to changing global, social, economic, and educational trends I am currently completing a Master of Educational Psychology.

Please find attached my curriculum vitae for your consideration.  Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Claire Robbins
