Mr. John A. Jones, Principal
Any County High School
Any School Street
Anytown, VA 22222
Dear Mr. Jones:
Currently, I am a graduate
student earning a Master's of Science degree in Education at Shenandoah
University. My program of study will be completed
by December, 1999. At which time, I will be
eligible to teach both middle and secondary Social Studies.
Part of the requirements for
graduation and certification is the supervised classroom experience,
or student teaching. I would like to apply to Any
County High School as a student teacher for the 1999-2000 school year.
As part of my graduate
program, I have logged roughly 100 hours in various internship
programs in the Any County Public Schools this past year.
Some of my experiences have included:
Furthermore, I have
substitute teaching experience at Any County High School, and have
interviewed and observed Mr. Social Studies in his classroom during
school hours. Mr. Social Studies has been very
generous to me by providing ample advice for beginning teachers,
especially regarding the student teaching experience.
It would be my pleasure to have the opportunity to work with
Mr. Social Studies in the student teaching experience.
In fact, Mr. Social Studies has given me approval for providing
his name as a referral for student teaching advisor.
I hope you find my education
and experience worthwhile as a possible candidate for student teaching
in your school. If there is any further
information required by you in review of this request, please contact
me at your earliest convenience at (703)-555-5555.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
John A. Student
