The Principal

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am an experienced elementary teacher with experience in special education and CPR training. As a permanent resident of the Bahamas I would be grateful to be afforded the privilege to coach the children in your country. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. For the past twenty years I have worked as a teacher in different schools in The Bahamas. I have coordinated many grade level activities. I bring experience in different teaching style and strategies. I enjoy providing friendly service to all stakeholders in education. My supervisor once told me that my passion for teaching motivates students to want to come to school. I was recently awarded for having the most student attendance in the entire school.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I am very much interested in the position you have available and look forward to meeting with you to further discuss my set of qualifications.

Sincerely,

Sophia Grey-Hughes
