Dear Mr. Kay,
It is with great anticipation that I present my resume to you for an Elementary Teacher position available at Stamford American Hong Kong for the academic year 2018-2019. With a license for teaching and over 10 years of hands-on teaching experience, it is my goal to combine my range of experience, with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent teacher who will make a positive contribution to your school district.
The enclosed resume will highlight my career accomplishments and demonstrate my solid creative, instructional and leadership capabilities. Over the past 10 years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach a diverse group of students, and as a result, I have developed highly effective teaching techniques and instructional methods, which have allowed me to educate all styles of learners, and foster a fun, engaging and a positive learning environment. Within my career, I have had leadership experience as Early Years Department Head. I was involved in the curriculum planning and development, as well as day-to-day staff and student management.
One of my greatest strength as an educator is meeting each student’s unique needs by developing a personal understanding of each one of them. I am able to achieve this by seeing and assessing my students as individuals and tailoring lesson plans to accommodate multiple intelligences. Furthermore, I ensure that all my students are able to grasp learning concepts and enhance their personal skills by providing learning centers, hands-on manipulative and fun activities. I utilize these strategies to introduce new concepts, establish a connection between the classroom and everyday life, and to foster and engaging learning atmosphere.
I strongly believe in cultivating and sustaining strong working relationships with members of the school community. To maintain this, I create and send out weekly newsletters to keep parents up-to-date on school/class events, and welcome parent-teacher conferences. I also work in partnership with fellow teachers to develop new activities, implement beneficial resources, and refine teaching techniques. Furthermore, I establish a good rapport with my students and I let them feel that I love teaching and being with them.
I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss my qualifications and credentials in further detail, as I am confident I would be a valuable addition to your academic team. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.
