I'm enthusiastic about meeting you in person and showing you my interest and ability in directing, managing, and supervising the details that pertain to overseeing a group of boys living at Union.

I'm aware that duties include looking after the maintenance, repairs, and furnishings in the various rooms, as well as keeping household records, assigning rooms, and interacting with the residents.

Thank you for reading my cover letter and considering me for the job. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
