Dear Mr. Bartholow:
The Career Center at the University of Minnesota, Morris has informed me that your school has an opening for a third grade teacher. Please consider this letter and enclosed resume a formal application for the above position.
Referring to the enclosed resume you will note that I will be a May, 2005 graduate of the University of Minnesota, Morris (UMM) with a major in Elementary Education. Besides the required courses in the elementary program which consisted of professional seminars, curriculum, instructional methods and media, art, music, physical education, and children's literature, I took supplemental course work in creative drama for children, problems in reading, and early childhood education. I also took ten credits in developmental psychology and the suggested electives for my program. In addition to my Elementary Education major, I also received a broad liberal arts background at UMM.
As a part of my elementary education program, I student taught in the Hancock Public Schools for ten weeks in kindergarten and fourth, fifth, and sixth grade (the intermediate grades were departmentalized). In kindergarten, I implemented a unit on various aspects of water, one of which children experimented with the properties of water. At the intermediate level, I facilitated topics concerned with human relations: Equality, How People Choose Their Leaders, and Neighbors of the World. In connection with these topics and an overall school objective of making students aware of other people's feelings, I developed a bulletin board to reward those students chosen by a committee of peers on the basis of kindness, courtesy, conduct, and effort. The program was extremely well accepted.
I have had my placement credentials forwarded to you for your review. I would be most happy to arrange an interview with you at your convenience. If there are additional application procedures I should follow, please advise me. Thank you for your consideration.
