Dear Mrs. Taylor,

It is my great pleasure to apply for the post of a substitute teacher for Grade 3 students at Royal Crown Elementary School. This vacancy was advertised in the Nashville Teacher’s Association Bulletin of June 2017. I have been privileged to pursue a career in early childhood education with a decade’s experience under my belt. This, I believe, affords me the appreciable knowledge base required to satisfactorily perform the duties expected of an educator for Grade 3 students.

I possess a high school diploma in early childhood education from the esteemed Bluebird College, Nashville, TN. In addition, I am a proactive and highly functional member of the renowned Nashville Teachers’ Association. I am well-equipped with numerous skills and attributes to effectively contribute my quota to the development of students in your reputable school. Such qualities include time management and organizational skills as well as a multifaceted and dynamic knowledge base.

I have taken the liberty of attaching a list of referees who can attest to my work ethic, resolute diligence and good character. Also attached is my resume and full contact information for your review.

Thank you in anticipation of a positive feedback.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Butler
