Professional Records

With the increasing emphasis on teacher evaluation, it is more important than ever to maintain your professional records. Here are some things you should save and organize.

  • College transcripts
  • Certificates of completion of training
  • Performance evaluations by administrators
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Samples of your best lesson plans
  • Samples of outstanding student work
  • Photos of your best bulletin boards and learning centers

Keep your resume up to date by adding each of your professional accomplishments as they occur. If you try to create a resume only when asked for one, you will very likely omit things that should be there.
