I am pleased to offer my application for your consideration. Your emphasis on project-based, expressive learning resonates with my best, and most successful, teaching experiences. While teaching at SLP in Sanbon, in addition to standard curriculum, I taught custom courses in essay writing and poetry which focused on student projects.

I volunteered at Simin Presbyterian Church for several months, earned my yellow belt in Taekwondo (in the same building where I was employed!), and otherwise focused my free time on my students. I also moderated the Graduation Ceremony in the spring.

At University College Dublin, I earned a 3.89 g.p.a. while serving as Class Representative and writing, casting, producing, and directing an original stage play. I organized and led writing workshops, outings, and became an active resource for my peers.
My teaching experience culminates in full-time teaching at a private school in the United States. I gained experience teaching classes, developing lesson plans for a full arts and sciences curriculum, and completed comprehensive classroom management training.

I look forward to learning more about your school.

Thank you kindly for your consideration, Best, Ryan David Foster page 1 of 2

Active Teaching/ Active Learning: well-prepared lessons, engaging students through consistent testing for comprehension 3. Conceptual Control: warm-ups and games to train student ability to retain and manipulate information Best, Ryan David Foster page 2 of 2
