    I am trying to come up with a better and more reliable list of references for my resume. I think some of the ones I have are not so good, so how many do you have and what relationship to you are they? I have teachers and staff I worked closely with and my previous supervisor. I am trying to add some other previous administrators as well.

    I have about 5 references that I use. 3 from my current school where I was an aide, and 2 from previous non education related jobs. More I work, the more references I gain.

    I have five that I have asked this year to be references and most schools only want three so I usually just use three.

    I have:
    - 2 cooperating teacher from student teaching
    - student teaching supervisor
    - family friend that is a teacher
    - former director/supervisor
    - former day care parent
    - professor from my master's degree

    So 8. I have my references listed on a separate page but usually on applications they only ask for 3 so I use my former director and the 2 teachers I student taught with.

    Current P
    Former P
    One of the APs
    2 Teachers
    2 Non-education supervisors

    I mainly use the first three. If there is room for more, I add the non-teaching people, mainly because they can verify my work history.
