Dr. William D. Kasselhut,
Assistant Superintendent/Human Resources
The Right Way School District
519 West Chestnut Street
St. Joseph, MO 64506
Dear Dr. Kasselhut:
It is with great interest that I am responding to the recent position announcement on REAP regarding the high school English position. Currently, I am a student at Lindenwood University and will complete the program requirements for Missouri certification in English 9-12 by May 2004. I am enthusiastic and prepared to contribute my knowledge and experienced to this position.
My attached resume demonstrates my relevant experience for this position. What these materials cannot express is my uncompressing belief that all students can learn. As a positive role model, I have five years experience working with students in and out of the classroom. The highlights include:
Coaching Volleyball for Big Jump Jones Youth Camp
At-Risk tutoring for Bad Boys Institute
Please consider this letter as an expression of my interest this or any other English position that may become available in the near future. My application is available on REAP, but I will also be pleased to also complete a District application.
Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to talking with you.
(if that happened and is significant)
