To whom it may concern,

Pleas accept my application for English Teacher with your program. I would like to continue to develop my teaching skill while experiencing Asian culture. Kindergarten and Elementary age students are a particularly interesting group to teach. Watching them grow and learn is a very rewarding experience.

My teaching experience makes me a qualified candidate for the position of Esl teacher. My three years teaching English in China has given me the experience, both in teaching and adapting to a different culture, to be an asset to your program and to any potential students and school where I may be placed. I will be good representative of my own country and culture while abroad, as well as an ambassador of the cultures I experience upon my return to America.

During my three years teaching in China, I taught students aged two through college age. I created lesson plans, conducted student evaluations, and integrated fun activities and projects into lessons. I believe children learn best when they can enjoy the learning process, which is why I conduct my classes a positive and fun atmosphere.

Attached is my resume, containing my education and teaching experience. I would like to thank you for your time and the opportunity to apply for a position with your program.
