Dear Sir or Madam,
I hope you are doing well today. My name is Keith, and the reason I am writing is because I would love the chance to speak further about open teaching positions at your School, particularly in the Science departments. My focus over the last few years has been to prepare for a teaching career as I believe a love of learning new things is one of the greatest gifts we can give. Being able to inspire and motivate our future leaders to solve world problems is something I want to pursue with my background and experience I have accumulated thus far in my life. I believe it really is the most important job. Although my formal teaching experience at this point is limited, I just want the chance to prove that I can make up for it with my passion and enthusiasm.
As you can see from my CV, my preparation for this next phase in my life includes obtaining formal and informal teaching experience, the main one I am currently working on now, which is obtaining my Qualified Teaching Certification in High School Biology. I want a chance to be a positive influence on our future by inspiring children to be excited about learning new things and help them explore their curiosity and learn how the world works and their place in it. Because my wife is an educator, I see the fulfilment she gets from the role and I want the same chance to apply my skills and background to help shape minds of a future generation.
In previous positions, I managed teams and was part of teams to achieve growth of the organisations by working together to achieve common goals. I would bring this same commitment to growth and improvement to any organisation I am involved with.
Having degrees in science and working in technical fields for most of my career, I know the importance of using effective communications between many different individuals to problem solve and achieve a common goal. Also, being married to a primary school teacher, I know the commitment level required to be effective in this role. I believe that my experience in a wide range of projects and technical disciplines would be transferable and applicable to being an educator and I am looking forward to the challenge.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I very much look forward to the possibility of speaking further with you.
