I bought my most recent binder a few years ago at Office Depot. It's attractive, has pockets to hold additional resumes if needed, and my Office Depot page protectors fit perfectly. Within the portfolio, each page is kept in a page protector.
My resume includes the following sections:
⇒ Teaching Experience
= Past teaching positions
⇒ Classroom Achievements
= Curriculum and assessments used, unique programs or traditions
⇒ Key Contributions
= Leadership positions, school clubs, special assignments, grants received
= College degrees, post-graduate credits, additional endorsements
⇒ Newsletter Sample
I put a few recent samples of my weekly newsletter.
Here, I like to show some of our classroom anchor charts, book boxes, activities, a few letters from students and families and anything else that shows my classroom environment.
|Each section has a cover page|
|A few notes from parents and classroom observers|
⇒ Conferences, Trainings, Clubs
A bit more detailed than my resume, school clubs/teams, additional curriculum training
Trainings, Presentations, Staff Development, Performances
⇒ Teaching licenses, Certificates
|A few important highlights|
Recommendations and Evaluations
⇒ Recommendations from principals, superintendents, colleagues, and literacy strategists
⇒ Most current evaluation
I've used this format for my two most recent interviews and I was hired both times!! 😊 It doesn't take long to put together and it may be the difference for you at your next interview! If you have any questions, leave me a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
