To whom it may concern,
I am a passionate, fully trained and highly qualified Physics and Mathematics teacher. I believe the purpose of my career is to have an impact on the critical thinking of young people. Not only do I have a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (from Boston College), but I’ve also completed a Secondary Teacher Certification, including practical experience as a secondary-school teacher. Furthermore, for the last two years I have worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where I held a teaching and research oriented position.
Throughout my educational experience, I have come to the profound conclusion that teaching is not only a challenge that I can meet by drawing on my skills and experience, but also a commitment that I am eager to embrace. My goal every day is to have a positive impact on young people. Therefore, I am highly motivated to apply for the position of Teacher in your school. I believe that I can perform as an excellent educator, and I hope to contribute as much as possible to help in the positive development and growth of the school.
It is clear to me that as a teacher, I have to be constantly learning in order to continuously improve my teaching skills. It’s essential that I’m always searching for the optimal techniques, strategies and materials that best facilitate the students’ learning. At the same time, I wish to foster a stimulating and healthy atmosphere in the classroom to promote learning.
One of the most important tasks as a scientist was being able to communicate academic results in a clear and accurate way, both in writing and oral presentations. Through this experience I have developed excellent communication skills which contribute to my ability to be an exceptional teacher.
Finally, thanks to my experience working within international groups in different US universities, I truly enjoy and am stimulated by working in teams with people from all around the world. Furthermore, I believe that good collaboration among colleagues in a wholesome and communicative environment is pivotal for developing a successful educational program. I look forward to being a part of such an environment at your school.
