Below are sample cover letters. It may or may not be sent with a resume. In some cases, a resume is not sent with the first request for a job, but only sent if it is requested by the employer. In other cases, the resume is included with the cover letter. The applicant can call the school to find out if the resume should be included.
The cover letter should be written in formal business style and have accurate grammar and spelling. If there any mistakes, the letter will most likely be immediately discarded because a reputable teaching applicant would not send a letter with these kinds of mistakes. If the candidate is not sure about the grammar, he or she should ask an expert before sending the letter. It can be sent by certified mail, so the applicant knows it was received.
