Mr. or Madam Head of Talent Management/ Human Resources I am writing to express my strong interest in a teaching position. My experience teaching multiple grade levels has helped me to realize how passionate I am about teaching, especially English as a second language. I am the ideal candidate for this position because I not only have five years of experience teaching for elementary and high school students, but I also have completed my Associates Degree in Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. In addition, I have good English and Spanish language skills. Another strong reason that makes me the ideal candidate for this position is my motivation for learning new ways to teach. As a teacher I would be able to encourage students’ learning experiences and help them to develop their English language skills. It would be a great pleasure to discuss this position in more detail. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Alejandra Enc. Resume
