Q: What font is best to use on my résumé? I know most teachers love Comic Sans, but I want to stand out.

Secondary teachers should consider using Chiller for an edgy, dark, Stephen King-like effect. If your focus is being everyone’s best friend, use Calibri to silently convey to the hiring team that they’ve just found their next social committee chair, and you’ll be organizing happy hours and buying everyone martinis on Fridays after work.
