Dear Ms Graham,
As a seasoned and accomplished professional I am eager to apply for your Teaching Assistant vacancy that I saw advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
After reading the job description, I feel that my proven ability to be able to contribute to a child’s academic, physical and social well-being, makes me an ideal candidate for your position. Furthermore, as someone who has a calm, encouraging and positive manner I am confident that I will not only be an effective role model for pupil behaviour, but also someone who can communicate sensitively and appropriately with my pupils.
For the last one year I have been employed in a similar role to the one you are advertising with the Southern Central School. I am responsible for supporting teaching staff as well as senior colleagues in all their teaching and routine administration duties. I am actively involved in lesson preparation, classroom management and a wide range of children’s learning activities.
My key strengths include being able to provide positive educational experiences for children in a school setting and having their safety in mind at all times.
Right now I am seeking to forge a career in teaching by joining an establishment like yours where I will have an opportunity to learn additional skills in my chosen area of work. If you require any further information from me then please get in touch. In any event, I look forward to hearing from you as the recruitment process progresses.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review my application.
