So, I'm going to graduate with my BA in History next year, and I'll have a provisional teaching certificate for 3-5 years to teach on. My question is, with no background in teaching: How do I prepare for applying for education jobs? What do I need to include in a resume, what do I need to tell the principals and school board to make sure I have the best possible chance of getting a job? Here's some things I've looked into already: Teach For America (but that has the issue of the resume) Teaching at high-risk schools Going to my hometown and trying to use my connections with my old teachers. Also, I live in South GA, so I know things are different regionally, but I'm hoping someone here has a teaching job/experience and can offer some insight.
