It’s arguably the most important part of your file, but one of the most challenging to create: your resume. The task: enumerate all your relevant accomplishments, education, work experience, skills, and interests…preferably on one page. Sounds easy, right?

This fall, we’ll take you through a series of sample resumes for teachers and administrators at different walks of life.
