    On your resume, do you refer to yourself as a teacher, or do you use some other trendy terminology like "educational professional" or "classroom manager?"

    Mine says "Classroom Teacher" and grade levels I have taught.

    Life Science Teacher - it puts me in a category without pinning me to a single subject or grade level.

    I'd put Classroom Teacher...no need to get fancy with the terminology. Classroom Manager sounds far too businesslike IMHO, and personally makes me think solely of classroom management, which is only one component of teaching.

    Mine simply says teacher. I think if you get too wordy, it will be a turn off for employers.

    I also don't think it's necessary to get fancy with titling. I'd say:

    General Education Teacher
    or
    Third Grade Classroom Teacher

    If y ou want to be more specific about the grade level you teach, say things such as:

    Elementary Classroom Teacher
    Middle School Science Teacher
    High School Media Teacher

    I would be turned off if I saw all that fancy smancy wording....I think just simply putting "teacher" or as others have said referencing the grade level w/ "third grade teacher" or "middle school teacher" is great as well.

    I use:
    English and Psychology Instructor

    because I teach both, but 3 of my class periods are college courses for college credit ... Instructor doesn't sound "too" fancy, and it captures the college aspect without using something like "Adjunct Professor."
