    At the very top I would list the kind of job you're qualified for. Your certification info needs to be VERY prominent.

    Am I missing something, or is it not there at all?????

    Oh, and I would most certainly leave off the high school diploma. I think it should be assumed.

    For me it doesn't look "full"... Descriptions are too short.

    One thing I will quickly mention, in one of the descriptions you write "several"...List the subjects instead of the general term several.

    If you are new to your career, then you typically want to put education on top first and list your credentials.

    So, mine currenlty looks like this:



    Have you looked up teacher resume samples on the internet to give you some ideas? There's details that you can put under substitute: You can discuss classroom management skills, flexibility, etc.
