Address: Panania 2213 Home phone: Mobile Phone: Email: Identification Number (PIN): To Whom it may concern, I would like to express my interest in a casual teaching position at, __________________. I am an aspiring primary teacher currently in my fourth year of university. I study at the Australian Catholic University in Strathfield. Over the course of the Bachelor of Education (Primary) degree I have gained much experience with lesson planning, creating units of work and implementing a variety of strategies in the classroom. I have gained invaluable experiences from the number of practicums I attended. The schools that were attended include schools with differing socio-economic statuses and learning needs. These have helped to shape my understanding of creating inclusive learning environments and the importance of diversifying learning for all students. During my practicum experiences, learnt a tremendous amount from my supervising teacher and have always strived to work in a school much like it. I believe the ethos of the school and the culture of learning through Catholic faith that is demonstrated is greatly beneficial to students. Throughout my practicums I have been given strong reflections from the assessors when they have viewed my lessons. These have encouraged me to continue my training and provided me with confidence in my skills. Through my practicums, and in doing university assignments, I have been well trained in the effective implementation of ICT across all Key Learning Areas. I have learnt how to efficiently use technology to diversify learning and differentiate for the needs of the students. I have also learnt skills that allow me to integrate different Key Learning Areas. I have gained a teaching philosophy that implements cooperative learning and cohesion amongst students. I aim to develop this teaching philosophy through my casual teaching. My experiences in practicums at a variety of schools and my study at university has gifted me a passion for education and my Catholic faith that I look forward to spreading to students. In being a student and a teacher at ____________, I have had the culture and ethos of the school embedded in my attitude to learning and faith. Thank you for your time and I look forward to speaking with you further. Please find attached my resume and supporting awards/documents.
