To Whom It May Concern:

It is with considerable interest that I endorse my resume for a Life Skills Teaching position with
the Southwest Independent School District. I am confident you will find that my commitment for
education and hands-on experience will be a positive asset to your school district.

As a well-rounded educator, I have had the chance to teach a diverse group of students with
different abilities. During my time in Texas A&Ms Special Education Program I worked with
students with autism, learning disabilities, noncompliant behavior, speech impairments and
English language learners. As a result, I have gained an abundance of knowledge on
accommodating and modifying curriculum to meet students individual needs.

I encourage student learning by establishing a safe classroom environment and incorporating

various forms of technology, hands-on activities and real-life examples in my lessons. These
methods helped stimulate students social, emotional, and academic growth. In addition, I utilize
these strategies to introduce new concepts and foster an exciting engaging classroom

During student teaching I was able to identify my strengths. One of my strengths is creating
strong student-teacher relationships. This was done by talking to the students about their likes
and dislikes and incorporating them in their lessons. Another strength I have is accommodating
my lesson to the students individual needs. Furthermore, these strengths helped me establish a
safe and productive classroom climate during my student teaching experience.

I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss my qualification and
credentials in further detail. Thank you for your time and please contact me at you earliest
