Dear Ms Graham,
I would like to propose my candidacy for your position of Art teacher which I saw advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website. I am an experienced and dedicated Art teacher who is now looking for just such an exciting challenge.
As someone who genuinely wants to contribute to the lives of young people, I can be relied upon to promote learning and academic achievement at every opportunity.
I have the ability to influence the behaviour of children in a classroom setting and can teach those between the ages of five to sixteen. As a true professional I am open minded and willing to take on new ideas if I believe they are likely to help to drive class attainment. In essence what I am trying to say is that I can create an environment where pupils will become eager to learn and progress.
At the moment I work alongside similarly creative teachers in a dynamic and forward-thinking Arts Department. I have been with my present school for the last five years and have excellent references from the Head Teacher.
I would also like to mention that I am ambitious and have the capacity to excel quickly into a leadership role.
Right now I am looking for a role where I can further my teaching career and would like to join an ambitious school like yours where skills, enthusiasm and hard work will always be appreciated.
The enclosed resume provides a more detailed description of my education, interests, and work experience. I thank you for your time and expectantly look forward to hearing from you.

Sub: Application for the Position of Art Teacher
Dear Ms./Mr. Last Name,
I have been made aware of a job opening for an art teacher at your esteemed school by Ms. Stone, who works at your school as a History teacher. I am writing to you to apply for this position.
I am a certified art teacher with 7 years of work experience instructing students of all ages in the field of art. Though I have a special interest in pottery, I am capable of teaching various types of art such as watercolor painting, oil painting, and charcoal sketching. I also have experience in teaching photography to high school students. My method of instruction is simple. I only teach technique to students; I never tell them what they should create. Art is highly subjective and a figment of one's imagination, which I believe should not be deterred by instruction. I try my best not to deter students from taking up art projects at any level, even if they are only beginners. It is only through trial that a person understands her/his capabilities. The freedom to create is what forms the basis of my instruction in the vast and beautiful field of art.
I presume that these skills are what you are looking for in an art teacher. As such, I have attached my resume for your perusal. I would also like to arrange a meeting with you on May 23, 2011, should you find it convenient. I will call you to confirm this on May 20, 2011. Alternately, you may contact me on the aforementioned number or email ID to discuss this wonderful job opportunity further.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
