After writing a targeted profile or career summary and a bullet-table highlighting your expertise, and knowledge areas, or core competencies you would place relevant employment experience. You may or may not put your education next – it would depend on your situation.
Emphasize your most recent, relevant experience to avoid creating an unbalanced resume. Give less real estate to irrelevant job experience.

When looking for a new teaching job, it is imperative that you not only have a good resume but good references as well. Do not include employment references on your education resume. Save your list of references for your education interview when you are requested to submit them unless they ask for them in a job posting.
Selecting employment references is an important part of the job search process. Choose references that you are 100% sure have the highest respect for you.

A student teaching internship provides numerous benefits that can provide your teaching career a solid head start. Two of the most important are the classroom teaching experience and a chance to work under experienced teachers who act as your mentors. Also, you will have new opportunities to see how a school operates, get feedback on your teaching skills, learn how to discipline, attend teacher meetings, and serve as part of an educational team.
How you present your student teacher internship experience in a new teacher resume will decide whether or not you are asked for an interview.
