Tips On How To Write A Teacher Resume

RESUME WRITING TIPS TEACHER RESUMES

  1. A teacher’s resume is very different from a business resume.
  2. An Objective section is optional because a teacher can only apply for a position they are certified to teach.
  3. The Education section is always listed at the top of the teacher resume even if there’s extensive teaching experience.
  4. The Certifications category is listed second from the top, just under the Education section. If you switch the order it would still work.
  5. A profile or summary is not necessary to include on a teacher resume.
  6. The standard format for a teacher resume is chronological. It is common to see the dates in the left margin instead of the right margin the way a business resume is typically designed.
  7. Unlike a business resume, a teacher resume does not need to tell an elaborate back story or get too deeply involved in personal branding.


  8. Achievements are always important no matter what the occupation is. The difference, however, focuses on lesson plans and exciting projects.
  9. Other things that are included on a teacher resume include the types of assessments (anecdotal, running records), types of students (general education, special education), type of classroom (inclusion, self-contained), and teaching strategies (cooperative education, buddy system, scaffolding, teach teaching, small group, whole class, one-on-one, Circle Time, classroom debates, visual, tactile, auditory, push in, pull out, etc.)
