I am writing to you with regards to the job posting on your website for a Lead Classroom Teacher. As a recent graduate from the University of Oregon's Early Childhood Education Master's Program, I believe that I would make a great addition to your staff. I am also a former employee of XYZ Daycare, and I am knowledgeable and skilled when it comes to your establishment.
I worked for your company as an Assistant Teacher for the Toddler Room and the Early Elementary Room from 2007 to 2011. I was under the supervision of Lead Teacher Kathy Lockhart, who I understand has retired this year. I had an amazing, enlightening experience with XYZ, and left to pursue my Master's Degree so that I could take on a role with more autonomy, responsibility, and creative control.
In your ad, you require applicants to have at least two years' experience in child care. I have eight years' experience, four of which were spent with your company. You also ask that applicants be certified and academically qualified. I spent three terms on rotation in three classrooms, teaching first graders basic reading, spelling, and math. I am certified in First Aid, CPR, Epi-Pen Training and Food Handling.
It has always been my hope to return to XYZ Company and use the new knowledge, skills, and resources that I have acquired in graduate school. I look forward to seeing the staff again and connecting with the new children as well. Thank you for your consideration.
