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:
?À Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development from George Mason University
?À Created unique and engaging lesson plans to help students learn and grow.
?À Researched new and suitable teaching material and techniques
?À 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
