I believe that I will greatly benefit from
continuing my teaching career in an urban setting because of the challenging
environment. I additionally believe that an urban teaching setting would be beneficial
because I would get to work with a diverse group of students. Urban schools
also face a plethora of challenges and need teachers that push their students
to excel, which if given the opportunity I am confident that I can accomplish
this feat. I
am applying to Queens College because of the astounding reputation the college
has in the city and Long Island. I am also very interested in the Master of
Arts in Teaching English program at Queens College because of the advanced
courses that the program offers. I have seen your partnership teaching
programs, and I am very interested in continuing my career in the New York City
Department of Education. I have looked at some of the schools that are
partnered and found them to be ideal teaching placements.

I
enjoyed seeing that the schools are striving for equity for all students within
their schools. I am currently a Teaching Fellow at a non-profit organization
and have completed my undergraduate English degree at SUNY Geneseo. My ultimate
goal is not only to be a New York State certified teacher but an excellent one.
I read your program description, the Dean’s Welcome Letter, and reviews from
alumni which assured me that this graduate school is for me. I especially
enjoyed the fact that the graduate course is willing to accommodate part-time
enrollment and work schedules. I currently work for Citizen Schools, and I am
teaching at a District 13 school in Brooklyn, New York. During my fellowship at
Citizen Schools, I worked in both Harlem and Brooklyn middle schools for the
past two years.

The
middle school that I currently work for focuses on a restorative practice model
and holds a mantra that “everyone has a seat at the table.” My experience at
this school is one of growth within communicating, building meaningful
relationships, and holding students accountable. In my short career as a
facilitator, I came to learn that it is important not only to teach lesson
content but to create real-life teachable moments that will be memorable. I
have also built many relationships with different students throughout my two
years and know that I made an impact on my students. The students in return
have made an impact on me and made me into a better educator. Completing my
Master’s Degree is my goal for this coming year, and I believe that your school
can help me more than accomplish that goal, but make my core skills as future
teacher stronger due to your rigorous curriculum. I will attach all necessary
paperwork that the Graduate Programs application requires. I appreciate your
time and consideration.
