Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing to apply for the position of Professor currently offered at Clearwater University. Teaching has been my lifelong career, and I am excited to reach new heights in the field of education. As a dedicated researcher with a passion for knowledge and learning, I am thrilled at the prospect of helping young minds take their first real steps into adulthood and develop valuable skills for both their future careers and lives.

At St. Helena University where I was previously employed, I competently taught classes of upwards of 40 students while offering personalized tutoring services to many of them during office hours. In both student and peer reviews, I was consistently commended for being easy to understand and good at interpreting the grievances of others to assist them in working through problems.

Both as an educator and student, my attention to detail has always been one of my strong points. As a professional, I feel it is my duty to ensure everything I do is done correctly and to the highest degree of excellence whether that is grading papers, reviewing lesson plans or collaborating with my peers to establish academic goals for the department. Naturally, this professionalism extends to the classroom where I endeavor to teach my students in a challenging and engaging manner focused on ensuring that they understand the material for more than just passing a test.

Thank you for your time and consideration of my application. I look forward to learning more about the Professor position at Clearwater as well as more about your institution. Education is a constant factor of life, and I endeavor to partake in it both as a learner and educator and hope to continue applying my skills as a part of your university.
