Science Teacher Resume

A science teacher resume is written by a person who is well educated in the subject of science and can impart knowledge to students as per the teaching standards and norms.

The field of science is pretty diverse and one can be master any of its branches such as physics, chemistry, or biology. These branches further have sub-branches which require more training and understanding to teach them. The level of one's required qualifications in this subject depends upon the level at which he will be teaching; it may be school level education or college (graduation or post-graduation) level education.

Usually for teaching at the school level, a person requires to have completed his graduation in science with a major in an area of the subject. Along with this, some basic training in pedagogical methods (that is, methods of teaching and instructing students) is to be taken in order to get the teaching job. But, when striving for teaching at higher levels such as the college level, one needs to further his educational qualifications by pursuing doctorate degree in the field of choice. A doctorate can help you to achieve the position of head of the department (HOD) in a college/university. The requirements for becoming a teacher vary to a certain extent from state to state in the US. In some states, it is necessary to undergo evaluations conducted by the state organizations during one's first year of teaching, where the evaluations are done based on the basis of the performance till date. Also, a teaching license from National Board for Professional Teaching Standards or any other equivalent state institution is necessary.
