what goes on a teacher's resume?

Hi, y'all,

I would really appreciate the collective experience and wisdom of this group
with this problem.

Now that I have finished student teaching, I am revising my resume (actually,
feels like I'm starting from scratch!) to send out for my first bona fide
teaching job. WOOO HOO! (GOODBYE UPS!)

SO . . . I know I should put all of that stuff like where I got my degrees,
gpa, area of certification, past employment history, yada-yada-yada . . .

what about the meat and potatoes, like my SKILLS? Should I list media I have
worked in? should I put together portfolios of my work? Of student work?
Should I mention different types of units I have planned and taught? Should
I mention extracurricular projects?

I am guessing yes to all of the above paragraph and more.

How detailed to I need to be in my previous work history? I thought I would
try to highlight the education tie-ins in my previous jobs (I have been a
corporate trainer for both Borders and United Parcel Service).

Thing is, I'm feeling like either my resume is going to be five pages long or
it will be printed in 6 point type!

I think I need to prioritize and do some editting here. Any insight into how
a successful Art Education resume is put together would be immensely helpful.

thanks so much,
