Teaching Resume Tips

|Teaching credentials should be one of the first things on your resume, in the education section.|
A teaching resume should follow the standard chronological format. Education and work experience should be listed with the most recent experiences first. Be concise about the information you list; your resume should not exceed one page in length. The only reason why it might go on to two pages is if you have a PhD or an extensive work history.
Teaching credentials should be one of the first things on your resume, in the education section. No matter how great you are with students, you are not going to be considered if you're not qualified. A Bachelor's degree and a teaching certificate will certainly be required. Make sure the potential employer will be able to find this information easily at first glance.
|Having previous teaching experiences are great but be aware that employers will probably ask why you are no longer at your other teaching jobs.|
Having previous teaching experiences are great but be aware that employers will probably ask why you are no longer at your other teaching jobs. This is a very common concern in the education industry and you should be prepared with your response. While there are many reasons employers aren't legally allowed to use against you, inevitably there are things that might make them leery of hiring you.
Therefore there is definitely a need to step cautiously when preparing a resume for a teaching job, but you still want your enthusiasm to show through. Just be sure to provide smart, relevant information in a straightforward and well-organized manner, and you should be on your way to landing that next teaching interview.
