Dear Dr. Bench:

I've always wanted to be a middle grade school teacher. Students in sixth to eighth grades are interesting to know, generally inquisitive, and easy to influence for good. I also like to get involved with the athletic events. I have talent in various sports and I find it a way to reach kids' hearts as well as minds.

I can be ready to join the other middle grade school teachers when school starts August 25. I have experience in a year-round as well as traditional school, and I have a current state teaching credential.

I'm writing this cover letter today to ask if I might come in for an interview so you can learn more about my experience and also see for yourself that I am well qualified for the seventh grade classroom. My specialties are history and social studies.

Your secretary can reach me at 234-567-9898 to schedule a meeting that fits your agenda. Thank you for considering my cover letter and application.
