Subject: Application for position of Art Teacher
Dear Mr. Eggers,
I wish to apply for the position of Art Teacher as advertised. I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this post, as well as the necessary experience. I therefore believe that what I have to offer to Mosaica Education will be of great benefit to the company.
I have a B.A degree in Fine Arts from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. I also have 6 years experience gained from working at a number of schools. I have taught the arts from elementary level to the stage of final year.
As you will see from my resume, my experience in teaching pupils artistic expression covers the entire spectrum, from drawing in charcoal, to painting in watercolors, to an introduction to pottery, to textile patterning, and many other kinds of art work as well.
I am a strong believer in meeting the needs of each and every pupil I teach. That is why I believe I have excellent communication skills and I am able to tease out of each pupil what it is they need most.
I find it easier to concentrate on what individual pupils need, rather than blanket teaching them all the same thing. In this way each pupil’s latent artistic expression is brought to the fore and exposed in the best possible way.
I feel sure that my proven ability to manage and maintain the highest standards as an Art Teacher will be of the greatest benefit to Mosaica Education and I have confidence that I can make a significant contribution to the institution.
I may be contacted at (444)-807-1611, or by email at email@example.com. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you at interview level, and I thank you for the opportunity to be considered for the post of Art Teacher.
