I'm working on my resume after 8 years being "off the market" do to speak. I am only interested in substitute teaching or SEIT (Special Ed Itinerant Teaching) at this point. My 4 kids are all in full day school as of last week but anticipating sicknesses, field trip chaperoning and general issues, I'm not able to go full time yet. My question to all of you is- can I put Stay at Home mom on my resume?! Is that ridiculous? Will it just be obvious that I gave up my full time teaching position to be a mom? I have a huge gap in employment from 2000-now! Also- most of my "references" have retired or moved on...my previous Principal, Special Ed coordinator, some peers,etc. Who do I use now? I guess I could hunt them down if I tried hard enough... Does anyone have any advice about resume/ cover letter writing for a rusty teacher? I'm excited about the idea of returning to work, but nervous already!
