Elementary Administrator / Principal
Resume Sample - Page 1
This elementary principal's resume sample is for a professional with solid education work experience and administration leadership accomplishments. This school administrator resume example communicates the job applicant's VALUE, VALUE, and VALUE!
This sample elementary school principal resume was developed using a professional looking format, which showcases Judith's credentials and expertise as a school administrator in a straightforward manner.
It begins with the title of the position the client (fictionalized) wishes to secure and underneath that there is a strong tagline or elevator pitch of who she is as an administrator. Then, we've written a professional resume profile that provides a premium overview of her best skills and top abilities as a school principal. After describing for the reader what she can do, such as create and monitor old and new policies, develop a positive school culture, and mentor educators, the reader will want to read on to find out more about her experience and skills.
We used up-to-date school leadership keywords to ensure the electronic scanners (applicant tracking systems (ATS) didn't bypass this potential job candidate. Administrative buzzwords such as budgeting and forecasting, individual education plans, program development, training and development, and fiscal management demonstrate her skills and will be sure to grab the reader's attention.
A quote gives an eye-appealing touch, so we incorporated one to demonstrate Judith's dedication and positive leadership. Having someone else speak to your abilities always comes across stronger than saying it yourself. So when possible, include testimonials in your resume.
Her education has been placed front and center on the first page of this sample elementary school principal resume because it's important to have a Master's Degree if you are a school administrator. However, we have left the years off of her degree as she received them several years ago and we also don't want to bring too much attention to her age as an older education professional.
Following her education credentials begins her professional experience. She has been in her current position for a long time so she will have lots of experiences and accomplishments to highlight. When writing up her experience as a school principal, we placed her everyday duties in paragraph form and then bulleted all of her many accomplishments.
In this example, we used a bold font to highlight key career achievements such as increasing student attendance, reducing student discipline, and improving students' reading levels. This draws the readers attention to these points to ensure they don't glance over them. You will also notice her accomplishments are quantified when necessary, which makes accomplishments that much more impressive.
