Drama Teacher Resume

Dramas, skits, plays, etc., are a part of one's academic life. Many students participate in various extracurricular activities during school and college days. Many also wish to learn these art forms, some with the opinion of pursuing any of them further as a career, while others take them as a hobby.

Many schools appoint full time drama teachers, where they teach the art as a subject in schools. Alternatively, they also appoint these teachers on part time basis, where they work with students for a few months or days before a gathering function or event to prepare them for some drama or skit. Besides schools, drama teachers are also seen working independently and operating their drama classes, where students come to learn the art from them.

To become a drama teacher, one must possess the skill of acting on the stage where there are no retakes. A drama teacher is someone who must know about different stories - fictional and non-fictional and should be a fan of literature while being highly imaginative and creative. Many drama teachers also excel at writing drama scripts. They must also possess a strong hold over communication. Drama teachers usually know more than one language and travel a lot to see and learn from different artists.

If you too possess the same skills and wish to work as a drama teacher, refer to the drama teacher resume sample given below. The sample given below is ideal for a candidate willing to apply for a job in a drama school, high school, or any other related institution.
