History Teacher Resume

Being a teacher can turn out to be one of the most exciting and fulfilling experiences for those who like working with students of all ages and also enjoy teaching them how to understand and love a certain discipline. Apart from passing the knowledge onto others, teachers must also be able to inspire, motivate and provide students a safe and secure learning environment.


History Teachers have a major part in introducing the subject of the human past to pupils. History is a wonderful discipline for those who understand it and like it, but unfortunately it can seem rather boring to children. That is why history teachers must be able to stimulate students and attract them into engaging in discussions. Additional responsibilities include providing necessary support and meeting the student's instructional needs, establishing, developing and implementing history curriculum and course materials and counseling students regarding academic performances and career choosing as well. This is a very pleasant and rewarding activity.

Your History Teacher Resume should contain pertinent contact information about yourself, such as full name, address, telephone and fax number and e-mail address. Whether or not you want to include personal information such as marital status and date of birth are optional. However, the most important part of your resume should refer to your educational background and previous working experience. A teacher has a great responsibility in teaching and influencing students, therefore education and personal competencies are very important aspects when creating a resume.
