Secondary School Teacher Cover Letter Sample a.k.a. Application Letter

Kim had developed her own secondary teacher cover letter and resume, but they weren't generating many responses for high school teacher positions. In this educator cover letter sample, you can see that Kim has excellent teaching skills, a beneficial teaching style, a strong passion for teaching, and measurable accomplishments — we put them front and center.

Just to let you know a cover letter could be referred to as an application letter, letter of introduction or letter of intent. Remember that your cover letter is your opportunity to introduce yourself to a potential employer. So, put your best foot forward!

Kim had just finished her student teaching practicum at a high school and is now ready to be a first-year teacher in a classroom of her own. So, even though she lacks experience, it's important to showcase her passion as a new teacher, as well as her teaching philosophy and style so that a school can determine whether she will be a good fit.

Teachers Resume Writing Process

This sample secondary teacher cover letter highlights Kim's goal and ability to provide a stimulating classroom environment, which optimizes the learning experience to help all students reach their full potential.

We made sure this academic cover letter written to secure a high school teaching position matches her high school teaching resume in format and style, ensuring consistency and visual appeal.

As well, when writing a cover letter, you want to have a strong introductory paragraph that clearly states what position you are applying to, as well as a closing paragraph that discusses follow-up and thanks your reader for their time and consideration.

Your body paragraphs should be two or three paragraphs total and should not be too long or wordy in order to keep your reader's attention. And, unless specifically stated otherwise by the school you are applying to, your cover letter should always be kept to one page in length.

At the end of the cover letter, below her name, you will notice that Kim has the word 'enclosure'. This is so she can specify what other documents have been enclosed with her application. This will ensure that all of her application remains together.
