Other Optional Elements

The rest of your teacher resume can include any of the following elements. Again, choose those which sell you best as a teacher.

  1. Work experience not related to teaching, science or math : This element is optional because your teaching experience is what interests principals and other hiring authorities the most. List these jobs in reverse chronological order.
  2. Career Objective : This is a statement of what kind of job you're seeking. Example: 'To obtain a Math teacher's position in a secondary school'. Don't get too flowery or trite. E.g. 'seeking a challenging position' - aren't all teaching jobs challenging?
  3. Honors and Activities : If you have some impressive honors (Dean's list, Phi Delta Kappa, any scholarships or achievement awards), or activities which relate to teaching, you can list them.
  4. Special Skills : Fluency or proficiency in foreign languages, use of advanced calculators or mathematics software, etc.
  5. Professional Preparation/Development : Special workshops, seminars etc. that you've attended.
  6. Professional Memberships : List those professional associations to which you belong. Include any leadership position or committee memberships. E.g. National Science Teachers Association.
