Subject: Job Application for English Teacher
I am writing to express my intention to apply as a junior teacher at Maginoo National High School, Poblacion Centro, Alanganin, Lipa as a full-time English teacher. I just finished my bachelor’s degree in secondary education with a major in English on March 30, 2015. I have previously served as an English teacher at the only private school I belonged to for five years.
I passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers on August 8, 2014, and started pursuing my graduate studies last year. I am enrolled in the program of Master of Arts major in English Language Teaching at Binan State College, Alanganin, Lipa. My educational background and my interest in the development of students led me to participate in different teacher training programs that honed my skills in teaching the discipline I have chosen.
In my experience as a secondary school teacher, I taught grade 7 to grade 8 students. In the period of three years, I have given effective classroom management, dynamic activities, well-constructed and student-centered lesson plans, detailed student evaluations, and well-complimented instructional delivery. Managing the different abilities of my students proved a difficult but gratifying challenge. I facilitated interesting but equally challenging activities to maintain the interest of my high-level students without intimidating the less-skilled ones.
Please find attached to this letter the pertinent papers needed to be included in the pool of applicants for Junior High School for this school year 2022–2023 for perusal and evaluation.
I hope to combine my diverse experience with my abilities to be a caring and dynamic teacher who will contribute positively to your school and the community in which it is located. I would be delighted to meet with you for an interview and look forward to hearing back from you.

This sample application letter or letter of intent is a great help to teacher applicants in DepEd, especially for the new passers in LET. Many new teachers want to apply immediately in their localities or towns to be stable and help their parents earn a living. Therefore, having a permanent teaching position is a great honor and a source of pride for the teacher applicants who will be given an opportunity to teach and be able to share their learning with the students. – Doki | Helpline PH
