What to list on a middle / secondary school teacher resume

While the resumes of all categories of teachers are likely to share some common material (see our article: general resume advice for teachers), much of the content you include needs to be tailored to the specific nature of working in a secondary/middle school environment.

The principal focus of your resume is likely to be on your ability to develop your students' knowledge in your specific subject, to adapt your teaching to the divergent needs of your students and to help prepare your students for the future workforce. Be sure to list the subjects you teach on your resume, such as: math, English, music, art, science, physical education, ESL, Spanish, computer studies, social studies, technology, biology, chemistry, physics, geography, history, drama, languages, ballet, etc. Indicate the type of school environment in which you have worked and the breadth of abilities, needs, problems and cultural diversity encountered.

You should aim to strike an appropriate balance between your personal teaching responsibilities, your relationships with other professionals within the school and your involvement in the wider aspects of school life. You also need to ensure that your resume reflects your passion for and competence in your specialist subject area and your commitment to remaining up to date in your field.
