To Whom It May Concern:

My experience as an elementary school student teacher has fueled my passion and dedication to
ensure that children grow to become lifelong learners. I will be committed to the students growth
throughout the year and aid in their development. I am writing to express my interest in the open
teaching position at your campus and that I feel I am a perfect match. The attached resume shows
that I have experience in your district and the qualifications to be a teacher.

I have a major in Elementary Education, with a Bachelors of Science degree in Interdisciplinary


Studies. I would also like to state that I have done my recent field experience at Evans Elementary in
Allen, Texas. During this field experience, I was responsible for knowing the school/classroom
procedures, teaching the students, and creating lesson plans in accordance with district curriculum.

I knew I was studying for the right career path the moment I began working for Allen ISD Kids
Club. I have been working with children for the majority of my adult life. Kids Club allowed me to
see the impact of fostering creativity in children. Creativity can accomplish many things in life and
has been a part of me and everything I teach.

Enclosed is my resume for your review. I look forward to future career opportunities to discuss. If
you have any questions or would like to schedule an interview, please contact me at 972-984-8215 or

Sincerely,

Ashley Williams
