Summary

To Whom It May Concern,
Please accept this application package in your school.
It is with the greatest of enthusiasm that I am applying for this leadership opportunity. I bring a depth of knowledge gained through practical experience and a dedication to lifelong learning. My skills and knowledge, and the variety of leadership experiences throughout my career will be utilized in this role. My personal and professional values align directly with your organization. In my roles as a Principal, and Chairperson, Lead Teacher and Learning Classroom Teacher in a Model Schools for Inner Cities school within the Toronto District School Board, I have facilitated job-embedded professional learning focused on supporting teachers with developing Math, STEM and inquiry -based integrated units with a social justice framework which encouraged students to be creative, innovative and collaborative in order to respond to authentic and relevant challenges.

I am passionate about working with educators, students, families and communities to improve student learning and achievement. Throughout my teaching career, I have sought continuous professional learning opportunities to further develop my teaching practice and supported other educators, with my learning, to make meaningful and measurable impacts on student learning and achievement. I believe it is an absolute necessity to make a conscious shift from viewing our students, their families and their experiences as “deficit” and recognize the wealth of knowledge they bring that is available at our finger tips to use as a bridge to make academic excellence attainable for all.

I believe that the purpose of education is to remove barriers, help students to develop a sense of compassion, empathy and awareness of the world, and recognize the importance of giving back to improve the conditions for all. Educators must have a sense of urgency in the way that we teach students and learn to develop critical thinkers who are able to challenge and power systems that alter the outcomes of one’s future. Every day, my goal is to inspire students to be inquisitive and to develop and apply the inquiry process to their learning thus teaching them to value lifelong learning.

These are reasons, I strongly believe, I am the best candidate for this position.

Thank you for reviewing my application. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my resume with you. Please feel free to contact me at at your convenience.

Sincerely,
Salima Rhemtulla
