The first point to keep in mind is that you want to conduct research to each school you apply for. This allows you to customize your cover letter for each unique position. Once you know more about the school and what the employer needs out of a new teacher, you can mention how you would be the best fit for the job.
Your resume will likely contain previous teaching experience, and since you want your cover letter to contain different information, it is appropriate to include volunteer or non-teaching work. The cover letter is also a good place to bring up any certifications or additional training you received. This is essential if the job listing explicitly mentions how applicants need to have certain licenses or certifications to get the position.
