I sure hope so!

I have 12 years of experience teaching high-school juniors
and seniors in a 2-year long program at my church. I was
officially and formally trained and certified by the church
to design courses for that audience. I developed and
produced training material. I delivered classes in person
every weekend during the school year. Loved it!!

Can anyone suggest how I can blend that volunteer experience
into my resume now that I'm re-entering the instructional
design field?

I've already worked as a training coordinator. And I've
successfully designed, developed, and delivered a class on
how to write procedures to engineers and manufacturing

I just don't want my resume disregarded or dumped because a
recruiter or hiring manager chooses to believe that I'd want
to convert anybody to my own religion. I just want to
maximize this as my experience.

BTW, I'm taking courses at my local university for a
certificate in training. Strangely (?), much of the content
of the "Course Design" course is stuff I learned in order to
get certified by my church (Roman Catholic) as a catechist.

Feel free to respond to me off-list. Thanks!
