An Application for the Volunteer Teaching Program
Dear Sir or Madam,
As a freshman majoring in math, Fm writing to apply for our schools volunteer teaching program in remote rural areas.
My reasons come as follows. Born and bred in the mountainous region of Yunnan Province，I have received
guidance and support, both financially and spiritually, from volunteer teachers since primary school. Therefore, I would cherish every opportunity to light up others' lives with my knowledge. Besides, I know so well about the hardship of life, hopes of parents, and the children's thirst for knowledge. I would take with me both professional teaching skills I have acquired in our university and the optimistic attitude towards life and heavy workload there. Finally, I have a very strong sense of responsibility and am willing to take supplementary roles, such as a school counselor, a food safety monitor, and a cheer-leading coach. Such issues are of equal importance to teaching and learning with regards to the all-round development of kids.
I really appreciate your consideration and look forward to contributing to the teaching in remote rural areas.
