TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,
Hello! I am writing this letter to introduce myself to you, my cooperating teacher, for my internship semester. My name is Brooke George, and I grew up in Bellegarde, Saskatchewan where I attended school at École de Bellegarde. I am currently in my third year of the Baccélauriat en education élémentaire degree.
I am a francophone. I grew up in a town that is majority French and I spoke a mixture of French and English at home growing up. I have gained some experience working with young people by teaching dance lessons, working at a daycare, and by volunteering with after school programming at the local cultural centre. At university, I personally tutored some of my friends who were taking introductory French classes. Throughout one of my classes, I also volunteered at William Booth Special Care Home, where I assisted with social activities for the residents. These experiences have been beneficial towards learning how to be adaptable, how to plan activities for individuals of all ages, and how to use my knowledge of both French and English in an educational setting. I hope to continue growing many of these skills in your classroom.
Throughout my high school years, I played on the school volleyball team and I would be interested in helping to coach a junior team. I was a member of the student council from grade 7 on and I was also the president of the student council in grade 11 and 12. I would be interested in helping with student council meetings or the planning of any events. Outside of school, my passion is dance, I’ve taken classes in a variety of genres since the age of 3.
Thank you for agreeing to take an intern this fall. I am looking forward to working and learning with you. I feel that I will bring enthusiasm and creativity to my internship. The most important thing that I can contribute is my desire to work with the students at your school and to get to know them and learn from them. I am looking forward to working with you and other staff members in the school.
I will contact you before the school year ends and arrange to visit you at school. Once again, thank you for agreeing to take an intern this fall. I am sure that we will both be able to benefit from this experience.
