4. What else can you bring besides teaching? As you full-well know, being a teacher is more than just teaching: we advise clubs, coach sports, chair committees, do data analysis, and more. What, then, makes you an attractive hire beyond your classroom skills? Highlight any leadership experience, professional development, and potentially useful experiences. In addition to my aforementioned journalism background, I made sure to include my experience as a social science researcher and data analyst so that I can potentially aid when the school is “audited” every few years. Not only will this help the school see you as more than a teacher, but it also shows initiative on your end that you want to integrate yourself more fully in the school’s environment.
