Dear Mr. Smith,


Independent schools such as Greenwood Elementary require a hardworking, organized administrative staff to ensure that the school runs successfully and efficiently.  My administrative experience and organizational skills would help contribute to the long history of success at Greenwood School.


I have extensive administrative experience in an academic setting.  For the past two years I have worked at the Early Childhood Center at XYZ College, where I alternated between running activities for the children and answering phones, scheduling parent-teacher meetings, and performing other organizational tasks.  I also served as an intern for the principal of 123 Elementary School, undertaking a variety of office assignments while also observing firsthand the day-to-day duties of an academic administrator.


I have attached my resume, and would love to speak with you regarding how I could make a significant contribution to Greenwood School’s daily operations.  I will call you within the next week to discuss arranging an interview.  Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely,


Susan Sharp
