How to Write a Teacher Cover Letter
Your teacher cover letter should work in symphony with your teacher resume. Your accomplishment statements on your resume can be used to your advantage in a few short statements on your cover letter.
As with a teacher resume, your cover letter will differ from cover letters for most private sector business positions as your accomplishments are quantified in a dissimilar way. Rather than numbers and percentages that measure performance in most businesses, putting your accomplishments in measurable terms can be a challenging task. Please see the teacher resume page.
Include two or three of your most outstanding accomplishments if you are an experienced teacher. This can include the development of teaching materials, awards, volunteer work, extracurricular involvement or special teaching certifications.
If you are a recent graduate or new teacher, you can use the powerful introductory or entry level cover letters in the OneClick Cover Letter Creator. In this case, the education focused cover letter is perfect for you. Include your teaching education, certificates, state licensing, and continuing education information. Any focus on mathematics, science, social studies, music, art, and literature in your education can be included. Show specific training such as education in psychology or teaching methods and any internship completed. Keep your statements limited to one sentence and keep the letter to four short paragraphs or less.
Your teacher cover letter will need to follow the same principals of most any cover letters. You can find powerful cover letters customizable for teachers and your skills and experience in the OneClick Cover Letter Creator.
Follow up letters are just as important for seeking a teaching position as they are for any job.
Teacher follow up letters can follow the same formats as well. The OneClick Cover Letter Creator contains powerful teacher follow up letters. These letters are composed with specific reasons of focus for following up. Studies have shown that teacher cover letters with specific follow up reasons get much higher response than simple inquiries.
I am writing to inquire about the status of my recently submitted resume.
Please inform me if I am in consideration for the job because I am very interested.
That letter gets much less attention than:
Recently my resume was forwarded to you for your open teaching position.
I am attracted to your school because of your outstanding gifted program.
I would be thrilled to meet you and honored if you would tell me more about the program and discover how I can help you.
