Virtual schools
Tue, 10-25-2011 - 11:14am

I'm still unemployed so I am trying the broaden my search into non-traditional areas. Dh has just started taking some classes towards an EdD degree and has done a lot of research into online or virtual schools. This is an area that's really growing because of NCLB. I've looked into this but, it doesn't really work for me because although I am certified to teach N-6 in NYS, I've never done so. I have certifications in deaf ed, which I did teach for 5 yrs and in library media which I did for 10yrs. But for those of you who have experience in regular classroom teaching in k-12 and are looking for a job or thinking about doing something different, it could be an idea to consider. I saw jobs all around the country for a company called k12 Inc. Other states have their own state run virtual schools as well.

Just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who is looking for something different.

I've looked at K12 and another company Connections that both have schools in my state.
