Overview

Destined to become the bible for teachers! Part One shows resumes and cover letters of people getting into teaching as a first or second career. Part Two shows how to get federal or civil service teaching jobs. Part Three is for teachers "getting ahead and getting noticed" in teaching and shows real essays used to apply for grad school, fellowships, or Teacher of the Year. Part Four shows resumes and cover letters for teachers, counselors, superintendents, principals, and others "on the move" in teaching. Part Five is for teachers getting out of teaching and shows how to make a career change while also providing job hunting advice.

Resumes and CVs are shown of administrators, assistant principals, teachers in child care and social services environments, college teachers and professors, counselors and librarians, elementary school teachers, high school teachers, as well as military science and ROTC instructors. There are resumes of teachers embarking on a second career in teaching, and there is even a section focusing on teachers changing fields. Also included are essays used by teachers when applying to graduate school programs or when submitting paperwork in application for Teacher of the Year competitions.

A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter the teaching field or advance in the profession, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to the teaching field. And for those people who want to leave the teaching field, there are plenty of career-change samples of resumes and cover letters used in real job hunts. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series:"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy—with Real-Resumes in hand."— The Midwest Book Review"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." Library Journal "Part of an excellent real-resumes series. Impressive, with sophisticated, persuasive, and nuanced guidance." -The Book Reader"This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool." -Small Press
