Hi. I used to teach first grade and quit to stay home with my girls. My youngest will be starting kinder next year. I've been home since 2007, so not tooooo long but still.
I'm in the process of getting some contacts, making old connections etc and putting together a resume. A sweet friend let me look at hers and she has a good deal of professional development listed. Now, sadly, I didn't keep up with everything I used to do. I was that dork who took every opportunity to go to a workshop to learn but either I can't recall them all or it's been a LONG time since attending one.
Is that something that I still need on a resume with someone who has not been IN the classroom for 5 years?
Would community service things be acceptable to add. I'm a girl scout co leader (I know I know,
) and I volunteered with children at my church for three years. I am also a preschool teacher (part time) right now. But as far as teaching goes I obviously haven't done much because I stay home.
I'm very confident in my ability to speak well at an interview and I know I'd do a great job IN the classroom. But I need my resume to look good.
Thanks in advance
