I am currently completing my Masters in Social Work at Thurston College, and will be
graduating in June 2015. Successful completion of this degree will give me fully qualified social
worker status in the state of Utah. As an experienced elementary school teacher, I have a real
enthusiasm and flair for working with children and wish to transfer the interpersonal,
communication, and motivational skills that I gained in my teaching positions to a new career in
social work. In addition, I have a long-standing interest in developing children’s potential with
regard to sporting activities, and am currently the manager of a youth soccer team in Layton.
I feel that as a social worker I can make a real difference in the lives of the children and families
of your area. I would also welcome the chance to work for a local authority such as your own,
where I would be a part of a small and committed team. My most recent practicum was with a
local authority of a similar size and with similar programs, so I am familiar with working in this
type of environment.
I am available for an interview at your convenience, and I look forward to hearing from you. I
can be reached at
or 385-555-9685.
