    I posted these in different threads at different times so I figured I;d throw them both together in here because I didn't get much of a response.

    1. What "categories" or section do you have included on your resume? for example, education, teaching experience, other experience, etc.

    2. I am looking into joining some professional teacher organizations to keep myself well informed in the education field. I am already a member of the International Reading Association because i am pursuing my masters in reading. I am wondering if anyone had recommendations for an organizations you belong to and would recommend in terms of its usefulness to you. I was looking into these in particular:

    Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
    International Society for technology in education

    I like that they provide journals focusing on education each month as well as other perks. Any other organizations you would suggest or thoughts about the two i posted?

    I feel that these would be things I would on my resume as well to show that I am staying current in the field.

    The categories I have on my resume:

    Certification
    Education
    Teaching Experience

    I would love to add a "Technology Skills" section, but there's really no room...

    Mind you...I have a LOT of diverse (but relevant)experience..so I have a two page resume. The headings are:

    TEACHING INTERESTS (Sort of like objective)

    EDUCATION (With a subtitled area of: Literacy Courses of Interest)

    TEACHING EXPERIENCE

    SUBSTITUTE TEACHING

    RELATED EXPERIENCE

    ACTIVITIES AND HONORS

    PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS

    CONTINUED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

    Ah. Yes, its on my resume under the Professional Memberships...and I am in these groups (all recommended by professors)

    International Reading Association
    (My state's) Reading Council
    National Science Teachers Association
    National Council for the Social Studies
    National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

    i find the two reading ones and the math one are the most helpful (GREAT websites and conferences) . The science is cool (the conferences are great). The social studies - though they have a fairly nice journal - it'll be the first to go.
