EDUCATION

Milton High School, Milton, Georgia

Was in Multicultural Club and Gay-Straight Alliance. Sung in Women’s Select Choir and Company B of Alpharetta Ballet Company after two years in both groups. Skipped ahead in Spanish due to advanced knowledge from middle school and became really proficient in it.

 

Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, Georgia

July 2013-December 2015

Explored every church in Statesboro but settled into Catholic Eagles and Meditation Club. Took a year and a half of Mandarin Chinese. Volunteered at Statesboro Humane Society. Took some courses like Media and Society and Communications that I thought would go to a degree in Public Relations, before realizing that I wanted to teach instead of work in corporate.

Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia — B.S. English Education, Minor in Educational Psychology

August 2015 – May 2018

Began my major courses in my second semester. Realized that I was as much interested in how people learn as well as linguistic education, so I added Educational Psychology as a minor. Took a wide variety of courses during my degree – learning a little bit of psychology, literature, rhetoric and education courses.

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.
