Here's a winning cover letter approach for teachers

A cover letter written for a teacher position shouldn't cause prospective teacher or teachers undue stress just because they are supposed to write so well. Teacher cover letters require a different style of writing. As a sidenote, compared to controlling a room full of a bunch of kids or adults, writing a cover letter for teacher positions should be a piece of cake! After all, a teacher cover letter is really no different from any other cover letters. The goal remains the same, to get your foot in the door for the interview.

A Cover Letter For Teacher Positions is "Elementary" My Dear!

Like any other job applicant letter, a cover letter for teachers has one primary purpose: It lands you the interview for the job. Consequently, every sentence, starting with the address line must directly relate to that purpose. For instance, that address line should have the specific name of a person who is responsible for interviewing and or hiring on it.

After all, it is an actual person that is going to decide whether to bring you in for an interview or not. And that person has a name. Which is not simply "Superintendent" or "To Whom It May Concern" or "Dear Sir/Madam." Take the time to find out the actual name of the proper person to address your "teacher cover letter" too.

A Cover Letter For Teacher Job Openings Tip

Each cover letter should be personalized. This suggests to the reader of your cover letter that you are a teacher who wants to work at THIS specific school, not simply any old school that will hire you. Every cover letter you send for teacher job openings should be unique to that school. This means that even if you send out dozens of copies of the same cover letter, each should at the very minimum mention the school by name, rather than simply "your school." This gives an individual feel to each of your teacher cover letters and can make a big difference in the results it brings to you.

Cover Letters For Teachers: Final thoughts

When you sit down to write your cover letter do not approach this like a teacher. Write with emotion. Show your love for the teacher profession in your cover letter. Show your interest in each particular school you apply to by mentioning something unique to that school so it shows you are actually familiar with it. And above all, don't be afraid to specifically ask for the job interview in your cover letter. You'll never get the chance to show what kind of teacher you are if you don't get your foot in the school door!
