I am applying to a data science position with a company in the education sphere. The position is technical only and I meet the basic requirements and most of the preferred requirements. It does not require experience in education, it does involve using data to measure teacher's performance.
My wife has worked in education her entire professional career and is the VP for Continuing Ed on our state's speech-language association, I also have a son just now entering 1st grade who has been diagnosed with ADHD, so while I do not have experience in the field I have a lot of exposure to the ins and outs.
Is it a good idea to include any of this in a cover letter? Or maybe parts? (like having a grade school child without mentioning learning disabilities)
