Teacher's Aide Cover Letter

This is an example of a teacher's assistant cover letter we had written for a client that just earned an Early Childhood Development Certificate. Jenny had no formal experience teaching, but a lot of practical experience so we made sure to focus on her practicum in her cover letter.

We integrated an esthetically pleasing graphic to set her cover letter apart from other teacher's aides competing for the position, and ensure she is memorable to the hiring administrator. Her letter of introduction matches the corresponding resume in formatting, style, and font to ensure a consistent and cohesive application package.

Teachers Resume Writing Process

As a new teacher with no experience this teacher's aide cover letter shows she has "personality plus!" The readers get a strong feeling for Jenny's character and how it is a perfect fit in this educational field. Notice how she is talking to the reader, rather than telling, which makes a significant difference in the message the letter delivers.

We have used Jenny's cover letter as an opportunity to briefly describe her teaching philosophy, teaching methods, beliefs, and skills. A cover letter is an excellent place to go into greater detail about who you are as an educator and what your personality is like. Remember that your cover letter should be an introduction, complement your resume, and ask for an interview.

We showcased Jenny's belief about educating young students right in the middle of the cover letter, making sure the reader will not miss it, and will be encouraged to move on to Jenny's teacher's aide resume.

If these types of skills are areas of strength for you, be sure to highlight them in your cover letter just like this sample cover letter.
