    resume question/ resume included

    I have been subbing in the same school district for over a year now. I also completed a 6 week maternity leave and I want to list both on my resume. Where do I list them? together as one, separate? I have the maternity leave sub job in a section labeled "teaching experience". I have not had not my own classroom yet and I wanted to highlight the things I did in the class. I did everything myself, from day one, because the teacher decided that she was not coming back. I have subbed from February 2012 until now and I did the LTS job April 2012-May 2012. But I also want to highlight the fact that I have subbed for a long period of time.

    TIA

    Since the LTS position was only two months, and was in the same district that you regularly sub for, I'd probably make it the first bullet instead of a separate position.

    I disagree with the above post. Not that it is wrong, it's a matter of preference.
    On a resume you want to sell yourself. To this point your LTS position is your best experience. That needs to be one of the first things the principal reads and not a bullet.
    I don't think either way is wrong as far as resume format is concerned. I do think listing them individually will draw more attention to the fact that you have a small amount of experience performing the daily functions as a teacher.

    I'm not a resume expert of any kind so please take that into consideration. I did download a resume guide from DePaul's University's College of Educations website.
    They did have some good suggestion for the bullet statements under Teaching Experience. They suggested statements that included an action Verb, what it was that you did, then a result.
    I posted my resume for suggestions. The last update was on 3/30/2013 if you look for it. I tried to use that formula.

    Implemented functional reading groups, centers and math lessons (what was the result of this?) (Why did it matter?)

    "---Are you saying that I need to put what the outcome was from the changes that I made?? "

    I'm not saying you need to, it is just a suggestion. I'm not a resume authority. I used this and I like it.

    https://careercenter.depaul.edu/_doc... revised.pdf

    I especially like the section titled "Achievement Statements" and that is what my suggestion is based on.

    "Could I just add underneath or before this section about subbing the district for the past year."

    I would not. I think the LTS position is different than normal subbing. I subbed for about 2 years before I was certified. I also had a LTS position. In that position I was the teacher. The teacher I subbed for was out the first 6 weeks of the year. She had a baby over the summer. That 6 weeks was more valuable than the rest of the two weeks combined. I think many principals will feel that way also, especially if you can demonstrate that your kids benefited from you being there.
    That is why you should use the achievement statements. Tell them the positive outcomes.
    Every resume they look at will have something about classroom discipline. So what? What did it accomplish, did it have a positive outcome? tell them about that positive outcome.

    I would definitely highlight the LTS experience, especially since you had to do everything yourself, it wasn't just following plans. This is as close as it comes to an actual teaching position. (I did the same way on my resume)

    I would like to keep everything in the same position on my resume, I just don't know where to add that I have subbed at the other school all the other time except for the LTS position. Where would you suggest? I am not sure if I would add under teaching experience or put it somewhere else under another heading.
