Since your cover letter functions as your introduction to a potential school, use this opportunity to introduce yourself, your teaching style, and who you are as an educator.

He also emphasizes the development of self-esteem and teamwork which are important aspects of physical education.

About This Cover Letter Sample
Here are a few things that I particularly like about this cover letter.
- The overall tone of Frank's letter is both friendly and professional. From the salutation ("Dear Paul"), we see that Frank is on a first-name basis with his reader. And from the last sentence ("It'll be nice to see you again!") we know that they have already met.
- Bullet points in the body of the letter highlight Frank's relevant work history and achievements.
- The second-to-last paragraph addresses salary without revealing any numbers. This leaves the negotiating to be discussed in person at a later point.

Thanks for sending me the job description for the Community Health Educator position. My resume is enclosed.
The position sounds ideal for me, as I have extensive experience in the areas required: developing and conducting training, creating and disseminating educational messages, and establishing trust and dialogue with diverse communities.
- At the Washtenaw County Clinic, I delivered trainings and program support to numerous community-based organizations.
- Working with AIDSCOM, I quickly established rapport with AIDS program Staff in other counties, providing highly effective technical assistance.
- For the Northern G.A.P. project, I coordinated a school-based AIDS education program for youth, interfacing with teachers, parents and community leaders.
My salary in these positions varied considerably, due to the fluctuations in funding available to community-based organizations. I am always willing to negotiate with prospective employers to ensure that our mutual needs can be met.
I look forward to speaking with you about the position and will call your office next week to schedule a time for us to meet. It'll be nice to see you again!
