    International School Singapore Resume help

    Hi all!

    I've been trying to get a good salaried job in Singapore, which is why I've been applying to international schools. I haven't received any reply from my resumes/CVs I submitted. Is there anyone here who could look over my resume (below) to tell me if I'm missing something? I'd really appreaciate it!

    The format obviously is off here. Also, I incorporate the mission and vision statement as well as keywords from the "About" from the schools' websites.

    My goal is to obtain the position of Secondary EAL Teacher for Stamford American International School. As an EAL teacher in the USA, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand for over six years, with drive, integrity, and teamwork, I know how to provide quality teaching.

    In the role of providing meaningful learning instruction for students, developing curriculums, building positive working relationships with staff and students, and showing ingenuity, I was praised for my school representation, differentiated teaching, subject mastery, and practical solutions. As a professional, I am committed to inspiring, building optimism, showing compassion, and praising courage.
