Dear Dr. Johnson:

I wish to apply for the position of High School Principal in the Grandview Public School system as advertised in the March 31 edition of The Seale World Herald. As you will note on my enclosed resume, I hold a Master of Education in Education Administration degree from the University of Miami with a 7-12 Principal Endorsement. I have been the Assistant Building Principal at Milton Middle School since 19xx. Prior to that time I taught middle school and high school English.


My resume illustrates specific examples of my leadership and administrative duties. My evaluations have always noted my strengths as being creative thinking, problem solving, strong long-range planning, and the ability to communicate with a diverse population. I believe that my strengths and abilities are exactly what you are looking for to fill your position.


I enjoy the challenges of education, working with teachers, parents, and students, and the opportunities to make education happen for each student. I feel that I can be an effective leader for Grandview High School, a school that has a strong reputation for providing opportunities for high academic achievement and personal growth for all of its student population.


I have enclosed my resume, and will send my credentials as your ad requested. If I can provide any further information, please feel free to call me or e-mail me.


Thank you for your consideration.
