Teaching is a competitive field, but if you’re a teacher, you already know that. What you may not know is how to make your resume stand out against the crowd of other teachers vying for an open position. Fortunately, we can help you redraft yours with our school teacher sample resume.

First, indicate what position you’re applying for and the grades in which you’d like to teach. This section should function like a typical resume’s objective or summary. Follow your introduction with a core competency list or skills and specialties that set you apart.

At this point, you can start divulging your previous work experience. You’ll see on the school teacher sample resume that a teaching position is followed closely by a long list of contributions to the position. It’s not enough for a teacher to include their former positions and a few key tasks they had. Rather, the more specific you get, the better your chances of landing a teaching position.
