    Well a lot of people have read, with no responses. I hope that means that it looks good to you, and not that it is so bad you don't know where to start. But, please let me know, I'm unsure about it and I will be sending it out soon. Thank you

    If an employer needs references, they will ask for them at the interview. I never saw the need to add "References:Available upon request" on the resume. Not having the reference information printed never caused me to throw a resume away.

    When you solo taught as a student teacher, was the regular teacher in the room? Can student teachers be alone with a class? If the regular teacher was present, you might consider deleting those listings.

    You seem to have a strong background in teaching.

    Regarding the solo teaching it depended on the placement. The first and last I was in the classroom by myself, the middle one the teacher was present.

    During the three days the teacher was out of the room doing report cards. My last placement I was more of a co-teacher, her baby had a medical problem, and she was away at surgery for those few weeks.
