Dear Sir or Madam:
I recently applied for a teaching position at your school and am pleased to present my portfolio to you for consideration. I have a master's degree in education and am certified K-6. With extensive experience and the desire to provide all students with an enriching educational experience, I am confident that I would be a valuable team member within your school.
My training and experience have been geared toward engaging and challenging children and helping them to develop into thoughtful and successful individuals. I have extensive experience with research-based best practices including systematic instruction, progress monitoring, data-driven intervention, and RtI implementation. I am familiar with a variety of instructional resources and methodologies including Math Investigations, Everyday Math, Words Their Way, the Daily Five, guided reading, constructivism, and restorative practices . As a result of my experience, I am well prepared to implement creative and challenging lessons that will accommodate students at all levels and keep them engaged and excited about learning.
I would very much enjoy meeting with you and learning more about your school and the contributions I might make. Thank you so much!
Neil E. Daly
