Dear Sir/Madam
I am writing this letter to express my interest in becoming an early childhood
educator at your school. I am a dedicated and qualified early childhood
teacher with a passion for childrens learning and care. I have experience
working in preschool environments with children of various ages. In my
current role I am responsible for implementing creative interactive play
activities. I observe and report to families on their child development and
learning, and have develop a rapport with children, families, staff, and
community.
I love using my knowledge of early childhood teaching methods and
techniques to help with the development and learning of young children. I
offer a vibrant friendly and nurturing personality that would be a perfect fit
for early learners and your program. For 19 years I have worked as a child
care teacher in a private setting as manager. Through this experience I am
able to experience a wide variety of teaching philosophies were creative
exploration is encouraged, and children learn through materials, involvement
with people, events, and ideas. As a result I am able to think quickly and
adapt lesson plans as needed. I have a passion for teaching young learners
of all cultures, I know I would be the perfect person for this job.
If you are looking for someone to help your youngest learners transition
from home into the exciting world of learning Im the early childhood
educator for you. I can be reached by calling the number listed above or
through email. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank You
Sandra Myers
