Dear Mr. McKee:

Today I am writing this cover letter to apply for the position you advertised on JobBankUSA.com for an elementary school teacher aide. I have worked in this capacity at schools in New York and am now ready for new employment here in Any Town.

I know how important it is to hire just the right people for elementary school teacher aides and I'd like to be the one you select to fill this opening at Rosemont. I am good with children and adults. I have patience with slow learners. I am a dependable employee and I have excellent organizational skills, which I hope a teacher will find useful.

May I schedule an in-person meeting with you next week or at your convenience to discuss my qualifications?

Please call me at 456-777-8989 to set up a time to get together if you wish to talk with me. Thank you for considering my application and cover letter.
