Teaching is one of the most impactful professions you could go into but it is unfortunately gravely economically undervalued. While the average number of hours worked each week for a teacher is over a whopping 50 hours, the average salary is a little over $60k. And that is not taking into account that most teachers will spend around $500 a year of their own money to buy necessary school supplies. Passion for their career and the acknowledgment of the importance of their work is what keeps most teachers in classrooms. 

To become a teacher, you must go through a thorough qualification process. You are required to have at least a bachelor’s degree in education and register with the department of education or a similar commission or service. This guide will give you some resume samples and some tips to elevate your resume and secure your next teaching job.
