To Whom It May Concern:

Ever since I started college, I have been passionate in my commitment to three things:
maximizing individual student performance, inspiring students interest in an independent life,
and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students. I have dedicated my school career to
each, as my resume will demonstrate.
I was excited to find a job opening in the Chandler Unified School District because both as a
grade school student in Gilbert and an adult in the Phoenix area, I have only heard positive
sentiments about the district as a whole. The positive reputation, dedicated staff, impressive
Special Education programs, and growing technology incorporated into instruction has drawn me
to have a strong desire to work at a Chandler Unified School.
My qualifications include a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education. I have spent two
years interning and student teaching in a variety of classrooms, taking the time to observe and
learn techniques from these experienced teachers. This past year, I have spent fifteen weeks in a
Self Contained Autism classroom, where my love and desire for the position truly flourished. I
worked tirelessly to create new, rigorous, but level-appropriate folder tasks, lessons, and job
placements for our students. I am currently spending fifteen weeks in a mainstream third grade
classroom where my classroom management skills and subject area knowledge has already
grown vastly.
Thank you for your interest and consideration in my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from
you. It would be an honor to be a Chandler Unified staff member.
