This institution brag itself with a motto " student on the center of every decision" - and in fact, what matter the most is to pass those kids no matter what. There is a quota and "teaching" is reduced to how many calls you do every week, how many notes you keep records, how much you listen to student procrastinating about their work and YES you do grade- using the same notes over and over- teachers share their notes and by the way, no lessons to create- so no differentiated instruction. Teaching should not be about numbers and credits. The worse place ever for an educator. As an educator you care, you teach, you want your students to learn and become part of a society. Working for Florida Virtual School is not a place for an educated, informed teacher. Be prepared to be a customer service representative with no time off, no bonus, and no job security.
