I would teach high school business (a fun class) or English. It would be awesome to not have to deal with the politics of being a teacher while getting to spend time helping students reach their goals (college, trade school, etc.)

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
