Dear Dr. Gatewood:
My name is Lori Depew and I am writing you to express my interest in becoming part of the
staff in your district. I received information of a business opening from your web site. Enclosed
in this envelope are my application, my resume, my references, and a copy of my teaching
certificate. I have requested that my transcripts be sent to your office.
I am currently teaching in the Wichita School District at Wichita Southeast High School. My
curriculum includes Programming I and II in which students learn Visual Basic, Programming III
and IV in which students learn C++, and Computers and Technology in which students learn
how to use a variety of computer hardware and computer software. I am also a volleyball coach
within the district and am willing to coach sports within yours as well.
As for my experience, I am also certified to teach all business and computer courses. I did
receive my vocational certification so I am qualified to teach vocational classes as well. Before
teaching, I received my Accounting and Human Resource Management Degrees at Wichita State
University. With those degrees, I worked as a Human Resource Administrator for a year in
Dallas. With this opportunity, I have been able to bring my work-related experiences back to the
classroom. This has been invaluable to me and my teaching.
Please review the information enclosed in this packet. I will be calling you next week to verify
that you have received everything and to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time.
Lori L. Depew, Business Teacher
Wichita Southeast High School
