I would love input on transfering my skill sets from educational terminology to business terms for my resume, and in determining a good direction for a career change.

One is the fact that you taught how to develop software programs.

Public speaking, you are a communicator. A valuable skill that is on 90% of job descriptions.

A title for a teacher with your classification and leadership would be mentor or instructor into the field of educational learning.

How about educator. The business world uses instructors, educators & trainers everywhere.

Would need more information about your teaching experience and grade level(s) taught. In general, the best beginning would be to search for job openings for the type of business position you want and write down the key skills/experience bullets they have. As a start, you could check out project/communications manager. You need: 1) Communications with all levels of an organization (Parent/Teacher conferences and Lesson Plans), 2) Project Management (Starting team activities and delegating duties to team members; as well as tracking progress) [Microsoft Project is a tool that helps with this.] 3) Flexible hours & Time Management (Grading papers out of class, working weekends as needed to complete/review student projects/reports) 4) Managing meetings and recording action items (Lesson Plan reviews and taking notes during planning meetings) 5) Interpersonal communications (dealing with parents, students, and school management by adjusting your communication style to suit the audience. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

I don't believe here are any "business" jobs where teaching experience has comparability. Occasionally there are training jobs but they are usually handled by people experienced in the work being trained not by just a "teacher." There ARE jobs in the non-business world which have comparable application to businesses (e.g., quality control, HR, sales, advertising, maintenance) but teaching is not one of them. Sorry. To make a career change you may have to get some training that might give you some ort of certification/license which qualify you for an entry level position in some business.

  1. communications skills 2) calm under pressure 3) supervision of people with diverse backgrounds and capabilities 4) budgeting 5) performance evaluations 6) community relations 7) development and execution of individualized goals 8) flexibility 9) operating under and maintaining standards and policies. You are capable of many things which would translate over to business. Basically any industry would want your skills.

Very good way to approach a career change!! First of all gather your job description, the job responsibilities that you have now, (I don't know how long you have been in education, I am assuming over ten years) any special projects that you have completed and the amount of students you were responsible. Now focus on "TRANSFERABLE SKILLS" what communications, computer, documentation, chain of command, programs that you are an expert at, and any projects that are associated with your name. Once you have these organized, convert them in a paragraph that best reflects these attributes: Maded, Saved, and Achieved. Each year that you worked reflect all of the progress for year to year. Do some research on corporate trainers that do system's training. All major companies have education departments that train their employees. Great luck to you!!
