Jennifer Marks
Superintendent, Basics North Supervisory District
10 Apple Lane
Ourtown, VT 01234

Dear Ms. Marks:

I am writing to express my interest in and excitement about a possible elementary teaching position in the Basics North Supervisory District for the 2002-2003 year. I will have completed all requirements for my Vermont Elementary Teaching Licensure upon my graduation in May.

As a psychology and elementary education major at Saint Michael’s, I have pursued a varied course of study that has provided me with a significant understanding of child development and pedagogy. While working in elementary classrooms, I have had the opportunity to observe a variety of teaching styles and to teach in schools with widely varying curricula and philosophies. I have benefited from the advice of teachers, learning specialists, and administrators in very different classroom environments, private and public, urban and rural. Aware that students respond best in a multitude of different settings, I have learned how to incorporate a variety of approaches into my teaching: personal reflective and writing time, collaborative group work in brainstorming, compiling, and organizing information, class discussions, and animated, teacher-directed learning.

During my student teaching semester, I worked with students of all ability levels while helping them to meet the Vermont Standards in all content areas. My academic background thoroughly augments my student teaching experience, giving me a high level of confidence in my ability to teach students in various grades. Furthermore, given my liberal arts background, I am comfortable integrating art, music and technology into a traditional curriculum where appropriate. Throughout my college career, I have exhibited leadership skills which I fully expect to take with me into any school environment. Dating back to my middle and high school years, I have been a strong advocate of and participant in community service. I have continued my interest in volunteer work while at Saint Michael’s where I have been part of the M.O.V.E. (Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts) core team and have participated in the Extended Service Program, volunteering in rural Kentucky and Selma, Alabama during spring break. All of these opportunities have made me knowledgeable and sensitive to the diverse cultural, social and learning needs of elementary-age children. I have come to recognize and appreciate the value of maintaining a strong home-school relationship, and I have worked hard to nurture this among my own students and their families. I firmly believe in being involved in my school community well beyond the classroom so that I may provide a supportive and effective learning environment for each child in my care.

I have enclosed a copy of my resum´┐Ż, a completed application, an unofficial transcript, and three letters of recommendation. An official transcript and additional references are available upon request.

I would appreciate an interview with you at your convenience. I will be returning to my home in New York following my graduation on May 12. However, I can be contacted at my campus address prior to that date.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
