Dear Sir/Madam:

My name is Natalia Pérez and I have a degree in Elementary Education from the Autonomous University of Columbia.

For me, education is something deeper than a mere memorization process. Education is something essential in people’s lives. Other than being a human right, it’s a crucially important stage where we gain both theoretical knowledge and develop our emotional intelligence.
For this reason, I believe that true satisfaction, in the professional field, lies in awakening people’s curiosity, creativity, willingness to learn and relate to others.
It is essential to develop their emotional skills and give them the importance they have. Therefore, I pursue a balance between academic excellence and shaping confident, ethical, and empathetic individuals.

That is why I would love to form part of the team that makes up your school and to enrich the education at all levels that I can offer with my training.



Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing this letter and sending my resume to express my interest in applying for a teaching position in the case of a vacancy at your school next year.
As you can see from my enclosed C.V, I have specific training in Hearing and Language and Psychology, as well as extensive experience as an Elementary School Teacher. I’ve also held the position of the Coordinator of the Elementary Teacher Team. Furthermore, I would like to highlight my working experience at a bilingual school, where I developed professionally with colleagues from Spain, with whom I worked closely in a variety of different matters related to teaching.

To conclude, I would like to mention that teaching has been my great professional vocation for many years, and I would like nothing more than to further that work at your institution.
I hope you’ll consider my possible contribution to your school. Please do not hesitate to contact to me if you have any further questions. I will be happy to provide additional personal details.

Thank you very much for your consideration and time.

Yours faithfully,


Dear Sir or Madam, 

I am pleased to present my resume for consideration as an English Teacher, and I’m including extra information about myself here, which I hope will strengthen my application for the position. 

I am of US and Spanish parentage; American on my father’s side. I lived in Madrid, the place of my birth, for almost 3 years, and I’m currently living in Minneapolis.  I am a native English speaker and perfectly fluent in speech, writing and reading levels. 

I am a very open-minded, flexible and tolerant person who welcomes new ideas and changes if necessary. Not only do I have a passion for teaching, but also for learning from what others can offer. 

One of my objectives when teaching a language, and the basis of my methodology, is to start from what motivates the students, involving them in their own learning. 

Additionally, taking advantage of my origins, I would not only base teaching on theoretical understanding, but also practical and cultural activities. In this way, students have fun while learning a new language and acquire the correct pronunciation of the language in real situations. 

I am well aware that schools and their pupils are increasingly heterogeneous and require individual and personal attention; therefore, as far as it is possible, I would try to adapt, improve and/or extend any type of material bearing in mind the characteristics and needs of each student. 

To conclude, I would like to sincerely thank the school for the opportunity to apply for a job where I can develop my skills and enrich my experience. 

Without further ado, I thank you again and look forward to hearing from you.
