Teacher resume format hasn’t just changed recently; rather it has evolved into a whole new thing during the past few years. Unlike resumes in the old times, modern resumes for teaching position are short, quantified and employer focused. Some features of modern and effective resumes are outlined below for your guidance:

Concise: In order to make an effective resume, you should make it short and succinct. Resumes which are more than 2 pages in length are usually not read by the recruiters.

Catchy: A teacher’s resume is a useful marketing tool and must be formatted wisely. Using powerful, industry specific keywords to describe one’s profile and supplementing job descriptions with strong action words is highly advisable.

Below are 2 well written teacher resume samples for your guidance.
