Verbs, Adjectives, Nouns & Awesome!

I compiled this word bank using key words and phrases taken from mission statements, teaching philosophies, job descriptions, school websites, and other education publications. It’s a great resource for teachers and other educators that want to create powerfully targeted resumes. Including verbs and adjectives for teaching and nouns for:

  • Lesson Planning & Assessment
  • Instruction & Classroom Management
  • Student Demographics
  • Professional Development
  • Colleagues & Parents
  • Technology

Not sure how to format your resume? Here’s a template I created specifically for teachers:

RESUME TEMPLATE FOR TEACHERS

Any feedback on these resources is very welcome!

RESUME TEMPLATE- A CV FOR NEW TEACHERS
I have been working in employment development for the past year and a half. I created this resume template using industry research including reviews from 3 Superintendants, numerous experienced teachers, and my colleagues at Bredin Institute. The result is a Curiculum Vitae that addresses the most common concerns of new teachers:
Clean visual formatting with distinct sections
A Highlights of Qualifications section 
Formatting for Education, Employment, Practicum, Volunteer, and Professional Development Sections
Sections for unique content including a Blog Address, Published Works, and Personal Interests
Good Luck with your job search and remember that one resume will never appeal to the specific tastes of every employer. I create my templates based on what works best most of the time and the rest is out of our control!

This cloud sums up  my re-energized autobiographical statement. Click it to read my complete autobio.
A number of the school districts I am applying to request a 1-2 page autobiographical statement. After reading countless examples online I decided to use the following strategies:
Keep it short and sweet: 1 page max
Use brief anecdotes to pique interest in my resume or an interview
Support pedagogy with examples and personal experience
Avoid jargon and opt for warm, accessible language
I would love critical feedback from fellow teachers and other wise sages in the education field. Is it effective? Over the top? Cheesy? Too vague?
