What should go on a teaching resume?

Should I include non-teaching jobs?


Answer by  dub93 (34)

Without a doubt, a teaching resume should focus on teaching experience rather than the non-teaching jobs. You should also include details on your teach philosophy and show that you have worked in diversed environments. You should also show your ability to affect learning the classroom my using creativity to engage and excite students.

There are two reasons non-teaching jobs could be on a teaching resume; if there are chronological gaps that need to be filled or the jobs were somehow relevant to teaching.

Anything related to education should be the focus of your resume, but other life experiences help you relate to your students and so should be there as well.


Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

Put your licensure/certification close to the top and you could include an objective that describes the grade levels/subjects you want. Include all teaching positions including field experiences and student teaching. It's a good idea to include other jobs (at the bottom) because those demonstrate that you have good job skills (team player, responsibility, etc.).
