1374 Words 5 Pages
I am applying for the role of a Year 1 teacher in your school as, after looking through the school’s website, I believe that I would be an outstanding addition to your staff. I feel this as the values and practices of your school are a great reflection of my own. As well as being dedicated, hard-working and extremely passionate about teaching, I trust that I would work effectively in your school in particular due to the emphasis on everyone working as one team. One piece of feedback from my previous school, was how efficiently I worked within the team and how I built magnificent relationships with all staff and pupils. I would endeavour to continue this practice in your school setting and become a valued member of the school.

I studied English Literature as an A level, which strengthened my love of reading. I have always been a keen reader since I was in primary school, with Roald Dahl being my favourite childhood author. Now that I am teaching in primary schools, reading is something that I highly promote to allow all children to gain a love of reading for pleasure as well as deepening their knowledge and inquisitiveness. For example, on my previous attachment, I would not only read my class a story everyday, but I would also encourage them to spend time in the book corner, often joining them to help them with their reading, researching and writing ideas themselves. A career aim for my later teaching life is to lead English in a primary school to drive a lifelong passion for reading and writing, like I have, to the future generations.

From gaining a beginner’s knowledge of the school, from looking through the website and visiting, I truly believe that if I were to be a teacher in your school that I would excel and enjoy every single day; even the most stressful ones. I also trust that I would add a fresh face and some fantastic ideas of achieving high quality teaching and learning in a broad and balanced curriculum.

William Arthur Ward once said “The mediocre teacher tells, the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrated, the great teacher inspires.”
