I have heard only the negatives about distance learning. Am I the only one that thinks there are positives? I know it’s a change but I have noticed that some of my students are benefiting in some ways.

Nope! I agree with you. I see major academic growth. As well as executive function growth. These kids will come out with strong skills in areas they wouldn’t have otherwise gained.


I see many students also developed some social emotional skills like empathy, encouraging others and acknowledging other’s hard work. We do monthly assemblies and so many students recognized their peers for how helpful and encouraging some of them are to each other.


One positive: The idea of a flipped classroom has been bouncing around for a while, but we didn’t really have the resources or the time to develop online lessons that students could use to learn before class. Now that I’ve spent almost a year developing lessons, I think I’ll assign parts of them as homework next year, and use class time for collaborative work.


I am one of a handful of full time online teachers. I am struggling! I would love to hear the positives and how you are achieving those great results. The rest of our school went remote after Thanksgiving and will co to use until mid January. I’ve talked with my team and one of my struggles is never having been face to face with this class. I can’t change that, but I am willing to change anything else. What are your grade levels and schedules, if you don’t mind sharing.

I see lots of things I will continue to use when this is done and somethings I can’t wait to see go! Most importantly I see my kids being more resilient and trying to find answers rather than waiting for me to give it to them.

My principal this week went through the list of kids full time online and marveled at those who were more successful online than in person. Sadly a large percentage though do not have the necessary support (parental or self-motivational) to succeed at the MS level compared to the HS kids.

My students are those who opted for 100% online. While initially due to COVID, I have seen reasons for staying online change. The bullied and non-social are finding success. Those families who lives don’t work with an 8-3 schedule are finding success. Those families with multiple parent situations to include geographic dispersement are having an easier time. Those motivated kids who work faster are finding success. Yes, aside from seeing friends regularly and the challenges of athletics, some kids don’t want to come back.

Is it good for everybody? No. But I had a kid ask today if the online option will be offered next year. Our school funding is linked to enrollment, so it would be worth it to consider that option for our clientele, if for no other reason than to keep the money that comes with them. If they want online, they will flock to whoever is offering.

I have the negative side. Students diappeared an extreme amount of failures no socialization and with special ed extremely difficult to properly teach

Hi all! I have been working at an agency for about 7 months now and have already shown lots of growth and development. Not to mention, one of my superior’s told me in a 1-on-1 that they thought I was going to be a lot more junior than I was when they hired me and that I have really impressed them with the work I have been doing. My agency typically does yearly reviews but I feel from comments that have been made that I could be deserving of a raise and/or promotion before then. How do I ask?

My manager asked me today which area in cyber do I want to focus my career in moving forward, and I honestly had no answer. Being 23, and only having background in python and data analytics I haven’t really thought about which area in cyber would peak my interest/would be a right fit. Guessing it would be a lot of trail and error on my part. But I wanted to see if you guys can provide some guidance into any specific areas that is interesting/good for beginners (Excluding Pentesting). Thanks!

Additional Posts in Virtual Education

Can we share salaries, type of school, and state? I make 54,000 in California for a charter school - which may be the bare minimum they is allowed in the state.

Any teachers who work at a full time virtual school? Would like to see more posts for this environment with tips, suggestions, resources, etc.

What “things” or “stuff” make it easier to teach virtually or work in a virtual setting?

Who is still virtual starting in January? Anyone given dates in your states as to when you will return to your buildings? Curious 😊


I am trying to build a virtual/online marketplace similar to TPT but focus on 100 percent profit for teacher sellers.

Would love a thread of different districts that offer a virtual academy. I’m looking for a change, preferably outside California. My district currently offers a virtual academy where your pay is on the same scale as in person teachers. So I’m not looking for companies that offer a virtual education, where they pay you minimum wage. Thank you!


Is anyone else completely annoyed how parents are pulling kids away during class to do chores or to help with siblings??


Are there any virtual teaching positions in Michigan that pay into the MI retirement system (ORS) for educators? I have 4.5 years until I can retire and due to my health may not be able to be in person. All of the jobs I have seen only offer 401Ks. Thanks for your help.
