This example special ed cover letter will help give you ideas if you are writing a special education teacher, resource teacher, teacher's aide, or paraprofessional application letter.
The letter of introduction is addressed properly, contains up-to-date contact information, and matches the resume. These are all integral to creating a strong letter of intent. A cover letter should include both your and the school's contact details as well as the person's name you are addressing the cover letter to. In this case, Aurora's contact details are in the header. A cover letter then needs to include the date, followed by the addressee's contact details. It's also important to find out the name of the person you are contacting so you can properly address them.
In the first paragraph of this Special Education Teacher cover letter, we start out listing Aurora's credentials and years of experience, which lets the reader know she is qualified. By beginning a cover letter in this way, a school knows right off the bat that she has the right credentials and experience that they are looking for. They will then want to read on to find out what other skills and experience she can bring to the school.
The letter continues in the second paragraph to describe the types of students she has taught, as well as her biggest strengths as an special education teacher. The letter really shows she has worked with a diverse group of students, which is very important to special education. It also mentions her capability to facilitate all learning styles and develop multisensory lesson plans to meet the children's needs.
At the end of the Special Ed cover letter, Aurora prompts the hiring administrator to offer her an interview by stating, "I look forward to hearing from you soon". It's important to end a cover letter in this way or by stating you will follow up with them at a specific time.
