The Principal,

XYZ Higher Secondary School

Bangalore
Subject: Application for the post of Maths Teacher

Respected sir,

This is in reference to the advertisement posted on the NYZ portal for the role of Maths teacher.

I have been a secondary Math teacher for more than 8 years, my passion and dedication to this profession have only grown with every year.

Currently, I am handling students from 8th to 12th grade. I believe that teaching is not always about subject matter knowledge and that there is more to it. Since Maths is a subject that instills fear in most of the students, teachers have to put in the extra effort. I’ve made it a point to stay up to date on the most current pedagogy and teaching methods, and use custom lesson planning to develop relevant curricula for students in order to maximize their engagement on complex concepts.

I would love to be a part of your school and render my services. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
