I can't find anything relevant on Google and I'm at a loss here. So, I'm throwing my question out to you all in hopes there are some people with experience that can guide me.
I'm a recent graduate with a degree in teaching. I was not hired on this school year because honestly, there are no jobs available. Most schools are cutting teachers around here, not hiring them. And the ones hiring are facing hundreds of teachers vying for one position. I do have an option of going to the city, but that school district just lost their accreditation, and honestly, I don't want to be involved in that mess my first year of teaching. Rant, sorry.
So, I have been looking for ways to make myself stand out a little. Teachers have been making websites that showcase their abilities, and in fact we had to make one in my last semester of school. I'm revisiting this and redoing my website and I need a picture of myself for the homepage.
My question is, what are some tips on taking a professional employment photo. I need to know what kind of clothing, what kind of background, etc. I need something that says friendly and approachable, yet professional at the same time. I'm not an extremely personable and open person with adults. With kids, it is a different story. I am trying to show myself in a different light on the website.
I plan on doing these on my own with my husbands help because we're broke.
Anyone have a great tip?
