Sample Application Letter for Teachers. Writing business letters has always been a challenging task. In fact, even professionals struggle dealing with appropriate expressions and tones. Application letter, for instance, is more than just a communication letter as it must serve as a personal declaration of an interest in a job post, hence contains the qualification highlights, introduces professional and personal brand, and even implies a request for an interview.

An application letter is also known as a cover letter.

Teacher Application Letter: The Content

As we deal with our sample teacher application letter focusing on its body (content), we’ll try to discuss as well its purposive organization. Usually, the body of an application letter is divided into these three major sections:

(a) Introduction

It opens the letter in an attention-grabbing manner, specifies the target position, may name the source of information on job vacancy, and may also advance to explaining how qualifications match the job requirements. Observe how the first paragraph of our sample application letter for teachers is structured:

As a rookie in the teaching profession, it is indeed a professional and personal advantage to reinvent myself and my teaching skills in an academe of excellence offering market-based and industry-driven quality education. In line with this, I would like to express my sincerest interest to seek a teaching position at iMillennial College, Ortigas-Cainta.

(b) Main Content

Also termed as the body (actual) and the densest part, it emphasizes the strongest points and shows how the teacher applicant meets the requirements. On the part of the applicant, it is a must to consider this as an opportunity to highlight the benefits that the organization will get and to showcase personality. Three to four paragraphs for the main content can be enough. Consider as well a few powerful sentences embedded in our sample application letter:

In addition to my professional qualifications, my good academic background and relevant teaching experiences…(educational background)

During my placement as a student teacher, I learned and applied a broad range of teaching strategies and approaches…(practicum experiences)

I have furthered my skills, to name a few, in managing diversified classes, planning and constructing syllabi…(teaching skills)

In fact, out of more than two hundred faculty members, I was awarded Employee of the Month in October 2013…(awards and recognition)

(c) Conclusion

In this part, the teacher applicant must sound enthusiastic and appreciative, and make a request for an interview.

Furthermore, I truly believe that we are all lifelong learners and would love the opportunity to share this philosophy with the students of iMillennial College, Ortigas-Cainta. I look forward to discuss with you soon how my experiences and potentials can best meet the goals of the school.

Full Body of the Application Letter

Greetings!

As a rookie in the teaching profession, it is indeed a professional and personal advantage to reinvent myself and my teaching skills in an academe of excellence offering market-based and industry-driven quality education. In line with this, I would like to express my sincerest interest to seek a teaching position at iMillennial College, Ortigas-Cainta.

In addition to my professional qualifications, my good academic background and relevant teaching experiences——having earned my Bachelor of Secondary Education, Major in English at Philippine Normal University-Manila with honours (Cum Laude and Best Student Teacher in English), conducted teaching practicum at San Beda College- Rizal (Private School), and worked as a faculty member/lecturer for UST College of Arts and Letters, have taken me into a genuine realization of the teaching profession and brought a desire to advance in a new level of teaching career.

During my placement as a student teacher, I learned and applied a broad range of teaching strategies and approaches. At an early stage of practicum, I was entrusted, with minimum supervision, by my critic teacher to manage classroom teaching-learning situations, and this proved my sense of responsibility and adaptability. I also acquired indispensable skills in managing classroom instruction efficiently, understanding diverse learning styles of students, evaluating student’s performances, adopting culture of organizations and subordination in an academic institution, and others.

Moving up the ladder, teaching in college for almost two years has given me new opportunities to grow professionally and made me realize the need to upgrade skills and knowledge. I have furthered my skills, to name a few, in managing diversified classes, planning and constructing syllabi, implementing the recommended curricula, and developing positive relationships among members of the academe. In fact, out of more than two hundred faculty members, I was awarded Employee of the Month in October 2013.

Furthermore, I truly believe that we are all lifelong learners and would love the opportunity to share this philosophy with the students of iMillennial College, Ortigas-Cainta. I look forward to discussing with you soon how my experiences and potentials can best meet the goals of the school.

Final Thoughts

Writing is a skill. We cannot reach the expert stage of writing effective business letters, like an application letter, without starting from crappy ones. Thus, it is always suggested that we start experimenting with letters in different types, formats, and styles. Also, writing personally (being honest then) instead of plagiarizing letter samples from the web or commissioning others helps much in developing this professional skill.
