Dear Mr Smith
I am applying for your vacant teaching assistant position that was advertised on the dayjob.com website.
I feel I am ideally suited to the vacancy in view of my experience, creative abilities, nurturing attitude and most of all my patient manner.
Currently I am employed as a teaching assistant at Moseley High School, where I have successfully helped pupils in all areas of the national curriculum and have created a positive learning environment. I consider my biggest strengths being my ability to plan effective teaching activities and to make learning a fun experience for children.
You can see my relevant teaching experience and qualifications from the enclosed CV and can be assured that I am well qualified to be an asset to your school.
I see your school as being progressive, and I look forward to the opportunity of being able to contribute to it’s continued success. I would most welcome an interview and hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
