    Besides the basics, what kind of things do you have in your portfolio? I still have mine from last year but I am trying to update it for some upcoming interviews. Here's what I have so far:

    -Resume, References, and Reference Letters.
    -Classroom Management Plan
    -Philosophy of Teaching
    -List of Professional Development Activities
    -Sample Lesson Plans

    What else should I add? Any suggestions?

    This is mine, in a 1/2 inch binder:
    -Resume on nice paper
    -Reference list on nice paper
    -Teaching License
    -Praxis Scores from all 3 that I took
    -Philosphy of Education
    -letters of recommendation
    and evaluations from mentor teachers
    -lesson plans (and units)
    -some certificates I have received (for trainings or completing certain things)
    -an article in the paper that mentions and pictures me from when I worked at a mentoring agency
    -lots of pictures of me with students, just the students, me at school functions helping out

    I would say, keep it simple and short. They are busy and whenever I even get someone to actually look at it, they just flip through it and don't actually read it anyway! I like what you have already. Add pictures though, they really help. I may make mine more simple next time I need to job search.
