    I have been working at California Virtual Academies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The chance to work from home as a teacher has been amazing. I never thought I could do something like this as a teacher. It is also exciting to be in an innovative field.

    Cons

    The pay! The pay is much lower than brick and mortar schools but you also have to factor in cost of commuting, childcare, etc that you would have to pay at brick and mortar.

    Advice to Management

    Work with union to create a better work environment and pay scale for teachers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California Virtual Academies (Sacramento, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first part of the process, you will be required to answer questions that will be recorded and sent to HR. If you pass that part, you have to teach a lesson using the program that is used in a daily basis to teach the students, called Blackboard Collaborate. It requires you to make a PowerPoint lesson on a grade level and subject of your choosing (this could often determine what grade level/subject you will be hired for). You will sign on to the designated "Blackboard/chat room" and teach the lesson to the moderators as if they are your students. Blackboard has great tools to use and allows the students to "raise their hand", write in a chat room, move items on the screen, and you can even give them the microphone to answer a question that everyone else will also hear. If they see your teaching potential, they will continue to tell you about the job and hopefully you will get offered the job!

    Interview Questions

    • Please describe specific examples of ways in which you have supported struggling students with achieving mastery of grade level skills.   1 Answer
