I am in the process of applying for a MAT program for elementary ed and the only thing I have left to do is a letter of professional intent. It is supposed to be 2 pages long but they didn't give any guidelines for format or content.
Does anyone have any suggestions as far as what to include? Has anyone done a letter like this before? This is probably a dumb question, but should it be single spaced or double spaced? I'm having a hard time stretching it out to 2 pages. I don't really have a lot of specific professional goals yet. I just want to learn to be a good teacher.

Is this a letter of intent to the school about why you want to attend that school or is it a letter to the education department about why you would make a good teacher? Either way, it should be written like a cover letter so it will be single spaced. There might be a template in Word to help you out. Or Google and see if you can find one.
Hmmm...I have never heard of this. We had to write a philosophy of teaching but not intent. For the school systems we sign a letter of intent. It is just a form stating that we "intend" to return to teaching the next school year. Without anymore direction I would tell them about yourself and why you chose to become a teacher and what it means to you to be a teacher. Then I would tell them goals that you have set for yourself. You might include some professional development goals like when/if you would like to return to college and what you would be interested in pursuing. Good Luck!
