Dear Ms. Santiago:
I saw your advertisement on the newspaper yesterday. This is a response to your ad, and I would like to apply for one of the vacant positions as an elementary teacher in BST International Christian School.
I finished my undergraduate degree in education from a prestigious university in Les Vegas. I received awards and appreciation on my graduation day and I was even summa cum laude. I worked as a pre-school teacher in the Ontario Elementary School after graduation. After two years of teaching, I continued my studies in graduate degree in education that opened up more opportunities for me. I am currently working as a part time instructor in Corsair College in the same field, and I am looking for a full time position in elementary teaching because it is my first love.
I will be looking forward to your response. Thank you.
Very truly yours,
