Dear Mr. Parsons,

Upon learning of your need for a Child Care Teacher at Bright Starts Preschool, I have been inspired to submit my resume for review. As a Child Care Teacher with two years of experience and a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, I have the qualities and skills necessary to be a great addition to your school.

My professional experience includes leading my own class of 17 4-year olds at St Peter’s Elementary School. I created lesson plans filled with play-based activities and then taught these lessons on a daily basis while focusing on the needs and development of my students. I am eager to get more experience under my belt and believe Bright Starts is the place for me to grow my career.

The following is a list of some of my most important accomplishments:

· Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development from George Mason University
· Created unique and engaging lesson plans to help students learn and grow.
· Researched new and suitable teaching material and techniques
· Evaluated and kept records of each child’s performance, which were communicated regularly to parents.

With my experience in the classroom and my educational background, I believe I am well prepared to bring the highest quality education to your young students. I look forward to the opportunity to put my enthusiasm and love for children to work at your school
