Subject: Application for the Position of High School Art Teacher
Dear Name of Recruiter,
My name is NAME and I am applying for the position of art teacher in your institution. I learned that the position is open from NAME, who is a ninth grade English teacher in your school. I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Art History from Name of University in DATE, and received my STATE teacher’s certificate in DATE.
I have taught art for five years in Name of School in CITY, but my husband has been transferred to your city, which is why I need to change schools.
I have visited your school several times and appreciate the opportunity you give students to participate in art classes. I believe my expertise would be an asset to your art program
I have visited Europe three times and spent time in most of the major museums in Paris, London, Madrid, Rome and Florence. I have also taken a small group of senior level students to visit Rome and Florence for three weeks during the summer break.
Throughout my studies of Art History, I have learned the major and minor political and social trends that shaped the world for the past 500 years.
I believe that for students who have an interest in art, it’s the best way to gain a wide exposure to many aspects of history. I would be open to starting a summer tour of the major art centers of the world for interested students.
The combination of art and education is my passion. It is my goal to put these to good use for the benefit of students and as a contribution to your school district. I would be happy to attend an interview at any time that is convenient for you. I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or by reply to this email.
Thank you for your attention to my application.
