1st Grade ESL Dear Patricia Thacker, I am contacting you to express my interest in a teaching position with Armstrong Elementary School. The role of Elementary school teacher has interested me for a long time. My past experiences in teaching 5th and 6th grade, teaching summer school, and being a Girl Scout leader have helped me to develop a love for teaching children. I am very interested in interviewing for a position at the Elementary school level. As a 5th and 6th grade teacher for eight years at Travis Intermediate, I have taught both Language Arts and Social Studies in the general education classroom. I have gained many wonderful opportunities in working with diverse groups of students and have learned how to motivate and keep students enthusiastic, engaged, and focused on learning. This has been accomplished through hands-on activities, a strong emphasis on vocabulary skills, and reading strategies within a cooperative learning environment. I am responsible for the academic success of my students and I enjoy motivating them with interesting literature and fun activities centered around Reading and Social Studies. I am a strong advocate for equitable educational experiences for every student. Through my classroom experiences, I have developed an understanding of teaching and have increased my knowledge of students' physical, cognitive, and social-emotional needs. I pride myself on the academic growth I have achieved with my students over the eight years I have taught at Travis Intermediate. Travis has the highest Title I population in the district, placing the majority of my students at risk academically. With the implementation of STAAR, data review and test scores have been placed on the forefront of education. While test scores are not the only means of assessment, in my opinion they are a strong indication of grade level achievement. While at Travis, my TAKS, STAAR, and benchmark scores have consistently set me apart from the scores of most of my peers. The following are a year by year break-down of my TAKS, STAAR, and Benchmark scores: 2013-14 Teacher with 8 years experience in Intermediate Education. Demonstrated skill in individualizing instruction based on students' needs and interests.
