If you are simply looking for a title, use a quote about education such as this, Every teacher a leader, every student a success." Or, you could find so many others in quote books.

A quote is a good idea.  Your philosophy of education is another way to go.  Do you believe every child can learn?  Think about your teaching philosophy and consider how to say it in a line or two.

For the future, I wanted to share with you that one teacher in my school (and my Principal only selects the best of the best), instead of a traditional CV, she built a brochure and inside put her CV information as if she were some sort of political candidate.

On the title, she wrote: Ms. Smith, for 4th grade teacher, sy 2008-2009: Your kids will thank you!

So, she did this lovely self-promo brochure which showed her tech talents, her creativity, sense of humor and, at the same time, gave the info we needed. She was hired instantly.

Well, first thing I would do is capitalize English teacher and then I would always capitalize I.

Always follow the KISS rule in developing a CV and try to have an appealing layout.  Your name, grade and date would be appropriate with a small quote underneath for the title.

For a title, try summing up your beliefs about education, teaching, or teaching English in a few short words.  For example, since you want to be an English teacher you might say"literature is an adventure" or "literacy for life" or something else that sums up what you believe.
