    Hello,

    I apologize if this is a silly question.

    This coming semester, I will be working, on a volunteer basis, as an undergraduate research assistant for a Chemistry professor.

    I am debating over whether or not this should go on my resume.

    On the one hand, Chem is my future content area. On the other hand, this isn't really K-12 education related, and I worry hiring committees would consider it be "padding".

    What do you think? Should I put this on my teaching resume?

    Other thoughts?

    Thank you for your input.

    It's not "padding" at all! It's directly related to the content that you will be teaching and shows that you are knowledgeable. Definitely add it to your resume!
