How to write a resume for teachers
The teaching industry is filled with competition for just a few jobs available in certain areas, so knowing how to write a resume for teachers is a very important part of getting in front of the school board and getting your own classroom. I know this from experience as I am currently looking for my first teaching position having just graduated from college. There really is an art to knowing how to write a resume for teachers. Here are a few things I have learned.

What administrators care about on your resume is your teaching experience. They also like to see any brief outlines of unique lesson plans or advancements that you have made in the classroom. If you belong to any organizations, you should always include that on your resume as well as any achievements and awards you have been given as a result of your teaching career or your teacher education.

Always list what type of certification you have along with what grades you are available to teach and any endorsements you have gotten in your education. If you have attended classes other than those required by your educational program, you should also include this information.

Some people, when learning how to write a resume for teachers want to show their creativity in the classroom on their resumes. As long as it does not get out of hand, we think this could be a great way to set you apart from the hundreds of other applicants. Maybe you will want to include a picture of yourself in the classroom or some pictures of you with your children. Perhaps you want to include a border around the outside of your resume with apples or chalkboards. If you are going to take a step like this, however, please be cautious and know where you are applying. Often, small, rural schools prefer this type of resume rather than the larger ones, so keep that in mind!

Make sure that you also include any organizations you belong to and any offices you have held or are holding within these organizations. For teachers, membership in the National Education Association, The International Association of Reading, and such can be very important.

Knowing how to write a resume for teachers is not much different than writing a resume for any other job. However, you will want to include information on the resume that shows what you can do as a teacher and how you will approach the classroom environment. Then you will know how to write a resume for teachers that can get you into the school and on to a great job!
