How to Write a Teacher Resume

Rick Bowman - Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Training as a teacher can be a very long and difficult process. However, it can be even more difficult to find a job as a teacher once you are qualified. The key thing is to make sure that your resume is as good as it can possibly be. Here are some things to keep in mind when writing your teacher resume.
  • Experience plays a huge part in successfully landing a teaching job. Many people make the mistake of thinking that their experience is irrelevant; but this is never the case. Any work experience that you have had should go on your résumé, no matter how irrelevant it seems. There are many skills that can be useful in a teaching job, so anything that involves English skills, skills with numbers and also people skills should be included in your teacher resume.
  • When writing a teacher resume, you should always proofread and proofread again. This is not as important when it comes to other jobs, but if you are applying for a teaching position the last thing that you want to do is to include spelling mistakes or other errors. If you want to make sure that it is perfect then ask other people to read it as well.
  • When writing your teacher résumé, you need to make sure that it is laid out in a manner that is easy to read. If your information is all over the place and in huge blocks of text then it is unlikely that your potential employers will be able to get the information that they need.  Set out your information neatly and in small blocks that are broken up with subtext as this will make it much easier to read.
  • Always ensure that your contact information and any other relevant information is up to date. This is very important when writing a teacher résumé. If you leave out information, or if you include the wrong contact information then you are running the very real risk of missing out on a good job opportunity.

These tips should help you when it comes to writing a teaching résumé. The main thing to remember is that the better your résumé is, the higher chance you have of successfully gaining employment. As long as you include quality information and display it professionally then you should be able to create the perfect resume.
