Basically, there is not much I can do about my resume. I would like for it to say more than it does about my “commitment to education”, but I think a good indicator would be me going out and trying different jobs rather than deciding I want to be a teacher at 22 without having tried other jobs. I do believe that the format is right though. You want to list as much of your work experience as possible, and as a teacher you want to have as much teaching experience and projects to demonstrate that you can. Unfortunately, my lack of ability to refine my resume is up to just having a lack of experience. As I work more, I hope to add more to my resume.
