Dear Sir,I was very pleased to learn of the opening for the position of Adult Education Teacher.
I am Laura Gibbons and I obtained my (MSW) Master of Social Work degree from Augsburg College in 2005.
I taught at the Minneapolis Adult Education Center as an Adjunct Instructor for Literacy for four years, first as a teaching assistant and then as a General Adjunct Instructor. I had the opportunity to teach adults 65+ years old and developmentally disabled adults most of whom resided at the Minneapolis long term care facilities.
During the course of the year, I have spent an average of 10 days of teaching which are divided into four hour blocks in groups of three; this includes 14-20 hours of assessment. In line with this, I have excellent teaching and verbal communication skills. I can create and revise my own lesson plans, handouts based on the required course sessions. I am sensitive to the needs of adults with physical and emotional problems. I have adequate knowledge on adult learning theories and practices. I am bilingual in both Spanish and in English. I am avaialble to work a flexible schedule; possibly including night or weekend classes.
I’m confident that my positive outlook, teaching experience, and my overall enthusiasm makes me a strong candidate for this position and I would very much welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications to be part of your teaching faculty.
