    Virtual teaching

    Jul 1, 2022 - Teacher and Instructional Coach 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Much better resources available to teachers to be effective for students in an online environment than when regular brick and mortar schools had to go remote. Tools allow for engaging virtual lessons if the teacher designs lessons and implements them well. My colleagues were dedicated educators and worked for the benefit of the students.

    Cons

    Virtual schools continually strive to find the best fit for virtual instruction. This causes a lot of change from year to year. There are corporate decisions being made that do not always appear to be for the benefit

    Workload and Pay

    Jun 25, 2022 - Special Education Teacher 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible at home. Mandatory times every day but some flexibility. Coworkers are willing to help

    Cons

    Pay is not enough for work being done. Most teachers are having to be teachers, advisors, counselors, tech support, and meet deadlines for data points. Students aren’t held accountable for missing classes or not turning work in.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A majority of your colleagues will go out of their way to help you.

    Although you are a teacher, because it is run like a business the higher ups fill your 8-5 day with redundant clerical tasks leaving no time for planning and collaboration.
