Kindergarten Instructor Resume

This kindergarten teacher was energetic, enthusiastic, assertive, creative, and fun-loving. She wanted a resume that would make these characteristics evident so that she could find a principal who was comfortable with them. The playful nature of the font and layout helps communicate her enthusiasm. The apple graphic, plenty of white space, check-box bullets, and triple horizontal lines sustain interest across two full pages.
