Lead Teacher Resume

A school has subject teachers, assistant staffs, principal, etc. All these personnel work in coordination to make the learning experience extremely fruitful for students. One such important faculty is a lead teacher. Since lead teachers usually work with elementary schools, they are also titled as early childhood lead teachers. Lead teachers work in coordination with school staffs, parents, and students.

In small schools, which do not have any assistant principal or curriculum specialists, the lead teachers are of great importance. The requirements for the said position in elementary and high schools differ to some extent.

Let us discuss the same and read a lead teacher resume sample followed by it to help understand the job role and ideal resume to apply for the same.

Job Description of Lead Teacher:

Lead teachers need to have considerable teaching experience, which is around a year for working in elementary schools and almost three years for high schools. To work with high schools, the candidates need to have a degree in a relevant subject, whereas in case of elementary schools, any such degree is not mandatory. A certified course will suffice for working with elementary schools.

A lead teacher does not teach a specific subject. These are head teaching personnel whom other teachers resort to in case of doubts pertaining to teaching patterns, curriculums, student behavior, evaluation procedures, etc. They conduct regular meetings with teachers and the principal and attend the school meetings and parent-teacher meetings. They have to be familiar with the educational regulations and standards of the school.
