Dear Mr. Smith,
What I love most about teaching students with moderate special needs is the children themselves. They know that I am interested in them by my enthusiastic approach and my ability to help them learn in the areas in which they are experiencing the most difficulty. I am confident that I would be a strong asset to your specialneeds program as a Learning Center Teacher.
I am skilled at developing modifications to curricula and lessons to ensure that each individual’s learning style is addressed with appropriate instructional plans. My students are highly motivated by the creative, multisensory lessons I develop. Seeing students grow academically, socially, and emotionally using these approaches is very satisfying.
In order to be the best teacher I can be, I worked hard to develop my skills and knowledge base in my Master’s program at Clark University (4.0 GPA). I gained top-notch experience as an Inclusion Assistant in the highly regarded Amherst Public Schools for the past two school years. Also, I have had extensive practicum experience in neighboring school systems. I feel equipped now to assume the responsibilities of the top teaching role in a learning center.
I am certified in elementary education and moderate special needs (K–9). My experience encompasses teaching the full curriculum to general education classes containing some inclusion students, as well as adapting instruction to specific children in small-group and individual contexts. I collaborate well with other teachers in a team-teaching setting and as part of a multidisciplinary team focused on enhancing the learning experience for each child. This range of experience prepares me well for teaching students in a learning center.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you. I will contact you to set a convenient time. Thank you for considering my sincere interest in the position.
