Dear Mr. or Ms. (Last Name),
I have come across a teaching position in your elementary school on your website. Your establishment is a well-known leader in the English language among all the elementary schools in our city. I was highly impressed by the achievements of your language club. I have a large experience in teaching first-third grade students and apart from my classroom work, I have been good at arranging language contests.
I am sure that my working experience and leadership skills will be very helpful in your school. I am intended to contribute to the success of your school by preparing students and winning the Olympiads on the state level. I have several working plans for reaching this goal and some valuable experience in preparing second-grade students for such events.
Thank you for your time spent to read about my personality. I hope to keep discussing our common goals in the interview. I’ve attached the CV and hopefully, it will help you learn more about my work and skills. I hope to get your reply soon.
