ESL TEACHER – BILINGUAL EDUCATOR

Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in a position teaching ESL education within the ABC school district. I believe my certification to teach bilingual education, K-12, in conjunction with my seven years of experience as an ESL teacher within both private and public school settings would benefit your school’s second language learners.
I am a passionate educator who has a personal understanding of the challenges second language learners face when coming to a new school. I myself came from Honduras when I was a young child and struggled to socialize with my peers. Worse, I had to repeat third grade because my inability to understand my teachers and course materials put me at an academic disadvantage.
It wasn’t until I met my teacher, Mrs. Sanchez, that began to blossom and thrive on an academic and social level. Her dedication to making sure that I was heard and understood the English language made all the difference in the world.
In one year, I went from borderline failing to status as an honor roll student. My self-esteem soared and I was able to make new friends and enjoy being a part of my community and joined many of the clubs my school had to offer.
I was so inspired by my experience that I chose teaching as my vocation in order to give back to second language learners so they do not have to struggle as I, and so many others, have in the past.
More than just a job–teaching is my calling. I have been fortunate to make a difference in the lives of second language learners and have been rewarded tenfold. I truly couldn’t not imagine myself doing anything else.
If you are searching for a bi-lingual ESL teacher who has strong experience. required credentials, and a deep passion and enthusiasm for teaching second language learners, I would very much like to interview with your panel to express how much it would mean to me to teach your district’s ESL curriculum.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon in the hopes of becoming a part of your school district’s dedicated team of ESL teachers.
