Je me sens bien tous les jours.

Run away fast! This is a for profit business. Upper management is neither competent nor professional. They do not do what is best for children. They treat their employees extremely unfair. If you don't adhere to the "party line" and lie with the rest of them, they'll find a reason to get rid of you. Biggest career mistake of my life!

I was a contractor for k12 and worked full time brick and mortar. It can be done. But you are not at all valued at k12 for the wealth of knowledge you bring to their company as an educator. If you are in need of making money you can tolerate things. Professionalism of k12 is questionable, lacks the professionalism found in brick and mortar.
