    Here is my resume, with specific information about schools and my location removed. I'd appreciate your feedback. I'll revise the cover letter I wrote during my student teaching seminar after this is in its final form and post that here later. It doesn't include the clubs I was in during college because I wanted to fit it on one page. The format on my Word document is more polished than this, but I just copy and pasted to make reviewing it more convenient.
