    I have been working at K12 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I very much enjoy my job as a teacher at a school in the K12 network. My specific principal is very open to allowing me to try new things and modify my course in a way that I think best way to serve our students. I feel respected and like my voice matters. Additionally, the flexibility is amazing. I can schedule my lunch break so I can volunteer in my daughter's classroom or go to a dr. appointment - no need for sub plans - yay! Also, many of the assignments are computer graded, so I do not need to grade as much as I did in a brick and mortar classroom. After my first year, I have been able to complete my job in a 40 hour week.

    Cons

    The benefits are expensive! I pay ~$350 a paycheck and still have a $5000 deductible until covered 80/20. The pay is not as good as if I were in a brick and mortar classroom, but I have no commute and my schedule is somewhat flexible.

    I worked at K12 part-time

    Pros

    The pay isn’t bad and you get to work from home.

    Cons

    Not much schedule flexibility at all. Was told that if something came up and you needed to change your schedule, you’re basically SOL. Overtime is basically required during the busy enrollment season. Breaks and lunches are scheduled and if you need an additional minute or two break it eats into your 30 minutes for lunch. Ridiculous amount of steps that need to be completed on each call and you’re expected to basically pump as many kids into the schools as possible, regardless of how good a fit an online school may be. You have to wait 90 days for benefits which sucks when you’re a contractor whose contract conveniently ends 90 days after being hired. Sorry but if you’re working 40+ hours a week, you should be eligible for benefits on day one.

    I worked at K12 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, great colleagues, decent pay

    Cons

    Companies like k12 walk a thin line between business and school. I left when they began focusing more on the business side than the school side.
