To Whom It May Concern,

Growing up on my family’s two-hundred-acre almond farm in the small town of Winton,


California instilled in me the hard work ethic and determination one needs to be successful as
an educator. I am no stranger to getting my hands dirty and rolling up my sleeves to any
challenges whether it be on the farm, at the work place, or creating innovative lessons in the
classroom. Coming across the CTE Instructor position for Marketing, Sales & Service excited
209.658.6782 me because of my unique background in both business and education and the opportunity
to combine them for a greater purpose.

From a young age, I participated in many extra-curricular activities alongside my studies and
learned to communicate effectively, lead efficiently and get the job done while still having
fun. I have carried those skills with me through my studies at the California State University of
Fresno where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in Business Administration with an emphasis in
Marketing, as well as my previous position as an Executive Team Leader of Human Resources
for the Target Corporation. My studies, internships and experience in retail as ETL- HR has
given me the knowledge and understanding of what business’s today are looking for and I
hope to create techniques, lessons and methods for my students to utilize as they transition
into the working world.

Here are just a few additional reasons why I am qualified for this position:
• Business/Marketing Experience. My experience of over 4 years in business include
my involvement of marketing and event planning for non-profit organizations,
wedding planners, and retail corporations. My studies have given me experience
with business marketing and research, sports and entertainment, computer
applications, and international trade. I was also involved in the American Marketing
Association and International Business Association at Fresno State where I held the
position of Banquet Director. I am confident I have the necessary skill set of
communication and building relationships with my students, peers and community.
• Educational Experience. My recent experience as a substitute teacher for all grades
ranging from K-12, as well as activities outside of the traditional classroom, have
given me the familiarity and confidence to teach a lesson and feel comfortable in
front of the classroom. I have developed lessons plans and incorporated technology
in order to increase understanding and engagement.
• Interpersonal Skills. During my time as the ETL-HR at Target, I was able to develop
rapport with my team through motivation, empathy and flexibility. The ability to
communicate effectively, listen, and problem solve are all skills I have gained and
strengthened. My interpersonal skills have allowed me to establish long-lasting and
positive relationships with those I have encountered over the years.

With these qualifications, I am confident I am a perfect match for the CTE Instructor of
Marketing, Sales & Service position. I am most eager to implement my experience and
contribute my knowledge with the students. If you would like to find out a little more about
