Resume Templates: Teacher


School may be out for summer, but if you want to snag a teaching job, it is important to create a resume that will rocket you to the top of the class. An A+ resume will get the attention of a principal that is looking to fill a vacancy in his or her school. Before you can wow them with your fabulous teaching skills, you need to land an interview.

Think of your resume as an exciting lesson, grabbing students’ attention from the first sentence. Create a resume summary to spotlight your love of kids and education. Accentuate your compassion and patience before getting into your teaching experience, making sure to include past summer camp or coaching jobs that involve working with children. Don’t forget to highlight your educational degrees in addition to the grade levels and subject areas you are certified to teach.

Blank pages can either be intimidating or inviting, depending on your point of view. Remember that even the most prolific writers are sometimes in need of a creative catalyst. If you’re feeling blocked, take a moment to read through our teacher resume templates before the bell rings and class starts.
