Dear Mr. Mack:

It is with great interest that I am forwarding my resume for consideration as __________(TITLE) within your organization. Throughout my career, I have focused on empowering my students to succeed by encouraging them to develop their strengths and grow both academically and personally. With a background in education and learning, combined with outstanding interpersonal and communication skills, I am confident that my qualifications and experience will be of great benefit to your organization.

I am known as a detail-oriented individual determined to excel, with proven organizational, communication and leadership skills, which are required to transform concepts into operating realities. With a keen eye for detail and strong time management abilities, I offer management and communication skills, which would transfer to many other environments.

From my resume you will gather the facts about my success as an educator but what may not be obvious is the fact that I possess a strong interest in __________(FIELD). The qualities that have made me effective as a teacher will, I am confident, help me become successful in a new field: my persuasive style of communication, ability to put others at ease, and persistent dedication to quality results.

While I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of educating young minds and stimulating young children to excel academically, I have reached a juncture in my career where it is time to examine new professional challenges. I thrive in challenging environments, and it is these qualities that attract me to a highly competitive and exciting career in __________(FIELD). My promise is that a meeting will not be a waste of time, yours or mine.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how my credentials and expertise can benefit your organization, and will therefore contact your office next week to arrange a mutually convenient time for us to meet. In the interim, I thank you for reviewing this letter and the accompanying material.
