To whomever it may concern,

I am interested in applying for an elementary-level teaching position in your
school district. As a 2016 graduate of San Diego State University, I have student
teaching experience on the 1st and 5th grade level, in both suburban and urban
school districts. I believe my teaching experience and passion to make a
difference in the community make me an ideal candidate for a teaching position
in your school district.

I have experience teaching elementary-level students in a variety of settings. I
am currently a guest/visiting teacher for the La Mesa Spring Valley and San
Diego Unified School Districts for grades TK-8th. As an Extended School
Services Attendant, I also have experience working with students in a small
group setting. As a tutor, I have further experience working with students one-on-
one in multiple subject areas. Due to my varied experiences and acquired skill
set, I believe I would be an asset to your program and staff.

I also strive to continuously engage in the community through outreach
opportunities within the student organization I co-founded: Aztecs for Education.
I would love to find ways to integrate community learning and service into my
lesson plans and future classroom environment.

It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be an
empathetic, passionate, and innovative teacher who will make a positive
contribution to your school district and community. I look forward to hearing back
from you in regards to an interview at your earliest convenience.
