Dear Mr. Johnson —

As I being to transition into becoming a Professor, I like to refer to my prior business experience. I started two businesses, both raised Venture Capital money, and failed. This provided me a lot of insight into what types of education I wish I would have had in a University. That's what I aim to help provide to your students.

That's why as an Assistant Professor I have been able to previously:
Assisted with all lesson plans and planning for lectures.
Assisted with grading, test planning, and test development.
Assisted with all in-classroom note-taking, preparation, scheduling, and student body guidance.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible. If you'd like to see a portfolio of my prior work examples, I would be happy to supply that. In addition, if there are letters of recommendation that you'd like to see which I did not include, please request them and I can supply more than five.
