Top 28 Achievements for a Teacher Resume

Updated: March 16, 2023

An accomplishment is anything that brought about a positive change in your work surroundings due to your efforts.

While your achievements are unlimited, it is best to write only ones that are directly related to the teaching profession.

How to Write Professional Accomplishments for a Teacher Resume?

If you have not kept track of your accomplishments in the past, you might want to go back a little and think hard about what you achieved professionally.

Think of all the contributions that you made to the different schools where you worked:

  1. Did you get an appreciation for your teaching skills?
  2. Did you implement or develop a new program or strategy?
  3. Did you bring about a positive change in the school environment?

If the answer to any of these is yes, you have to write it in your resume. See the 28 sample teaching accomplishments statements below to get more ideas.

Final Thought

Job seekers often face some confusion when differentiating a duty from an accomplishment.

Since you cannot interchange the two when writing a resume, you need to understand what each is used for.

Work activity is something that you do on an everyday basis and comes under the experience section on a resume.

On the other hand, an accomplishment is the result of your actions, which you have written under the experience section. It is placed under the accomplishments or achievements section on a resume.
