Dear [hiring manager],

I’m writing to express my interest in your job advert for a secondary school teacher. I’ve worked as a teacher for the last several years across various subjects, including maths, chemistry, and environmental science. Due to my experience and set of skills, I feel that I’d be very much suited to this role. 

I have a keen ability to understand a student’s needs, and am good at creating lesson plans, organising work flow and presenting ideas in a compelling way. My experience includes (but is not limited to) tutoring, extracurricular activities, group counseling, and coming up with a challenging yet achievable curriculum.

I feel your school would greatly benefit from my years of teaching experience and my ability to tap into young peoples’ interests, regardless of the subject.

I’ve attached my CV for your review. I’d love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss my candidacy further. Thank you for considering me for the position. I look forward to hearing back from you!
