Dear district 65,

I am writing to you today because I am seeking employment as a substitute teacher district 65. I have 15 years’ experience working as a substitute teacher in the Skokie sub co-op. I have worked classrooms pre-K to 8th grade. I have worked all subjects including Physical Education and Adaptive PE, Computer lab, STEM classes and worked with special needs children. I have also sat for detention and as a school nurse. I have worked one on one with many disabled children, I have aided disabled children getting on and off the mobility and wheel chair busses, aided them with jackets, backpacks and physical education dress. One of my best memories as an educator was when I helped a child with music therapy. A child was having an episode and I help them put on headphone and played Beethoven for them. Her mood elated from distress to relaxed to joy.
