are sample cover letters for a Teacher position. Which
teacher cover letter is the strongest and uses
cover letter design to grab attention in seconds - the
before or after teacher cover letter sample?
As you can see, the after teacher cover letter uses
underlining and bolded headings to sell key teacher skills. To identify the key
teacher skills Sheila needed to
market, she analyzed a fairly detailed teacher job ad and underlined
all skills in the ad she possessed to create a far stronger teacher
To create your teacher cover letter, I recommend you do
the same. Gather 5-10 job ads for the range of teacher
positions you are interested in and use them to
create your cover letter.
Underline all of the skills
in the teacher job ads you possess then make a list of
all of the teacher skills you have. Then group them by
related categories and use the teacher skills and
category headings to create an teacher cover letter that
showcases your skills and experience in teacher as well
as other areas employers are requesting - such as team player skills.
If you have already created a powerful teacher resume,
then you should have already used $, # and % to quantify
your achievements - so continue to sell these quantified
achievements in your teacher cover letters.
As you can see, for Sheila's resume we branded her as a
Reading Teacher - this also helps her cover letter stand out
for Grades 3-4 Reading Teacher positions.
If you review the content of the after teacher cover letter
below, you will see how it uses #'s to expand and elevate
Sheila's image. The more you quantify and
describe your experience using $, # and % in your cover
letters for teacher jobs the more
likely you will be to land more interviews and higher salary
offers and beat your competition. For more ideas on how to create a powerful
teacher cover letter you might want to review my 12
questions. Many teachers don't
think quantifying relates to teaching but it does as the
after cover letter illustrates.
