Teachers Resume Sample

A Teachers resume sample—this is very basic and to be used as a simple guide only. Stick close to a professional format when writing for a career in education. Within the first half of the resume, try to highlight your professional achievements early if applicable. Also, if you want a career as a teacher they expect you to answer Selection Criteria separately, aiming for at least a third of a page per criterion. This is especially important when it comes to applying for government positions.
