Unlike most educators, primary or elementary school teachers must be experts in a variety of disciplines and school-related activities. They must be maths teachers and English teachers, event planners and guidance counsellors. When applying for a primary school position, you must find a way to indicate to potential employers that you have a wide range of educational talents. A well-written teaching CV gives primary school teachers an opportunity to demonstrate the diversity of their classroom skills and abilities.

    List all your personal contact information. Make your name the most prominent feature of your contact information.

    Detail your educational background from your most recent to your earliest post-secondary schooling. Include the subject (or subjects) of your study and resulting grades for each institution.

  3. 3

    Detail your teaching background from your most recent to your earliest teaching experience.

    Write a detailed description of your roles and responsibilities at each teaching job you've had. Emphasise a diverse array of abilities, from curriculum writing and planning to classroom management.

  5. 5

    List any additional job experience you have that could help you in the classroom.
