Subject: Thank you – Second Grade Teacher Position

Dear Ms. Green,

Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me today.  I really enjoyed getting to meet you and talk about Bellamy Elementary and the Second Grade Teaching Position.  I again wanted to reiterate my interest and excitement in the position, and the school.  I know that my experiences at Forest Hills Global Elementary School, Bellamy Elementary School, and Murrayville Elementary School have prepared me for this position. 

I really valued getting to speak with the current Second Grade Teachers as well.  Their excitement for what they do, and for working with the students at Bellamy Elementary also reinforced my interest in the position.

Thank you for your time today and your consideration.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Matthew

Dear Ms. Smith:

Thank you for your telephone call and letter offering me the Research Coordinator position with the Worldwatch Institute.  While I am still very much an advocate for the mission of your organization and respect all the work you and your staff complete on a daily basis, I have had another offer which I believe more closely matches my current career goals and interests.  Therefore, while it was a difficult decision, I must decline your offer. 

I appreciate all the kindness extended to me by the staff at the Worldwatch Institute, and I wish you well in your search to fill the position and all your future endeavors.

Sincerely,

Joshua Seahawk
