If upper management doesn’t like you then forget it. They are not student centered at all youhave people in upper management positions who are only looking out for themselves and how they can further their agendas. Supporting students and their needs is not even one of their top 10 priorities.

K12's virtual academy in North Carolina (Did not realize K12 is for profit) - gave myself and other teachers promises of advancement during recruitment that somehow altered as new leaders were hired (outside of the state might I add) that seemed intimidated by other skilled educators (bait and switch); highly-qualified and hardworking teachers are not respected. Also, there is a lack of focus on students' overall and individual learning and tunnel vision is developed momentarily with a strong concern ONLY for the reputation of SCORES. Should this be the ONLY focus?

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.

It is hectic near the end of the semesters when you have students who haven't done any work all semester suddenly decide to start turning in assignments but the rest of the time you can fit it around your schedule. I heard it is different for Elem teachers who have to be at their computer during the traditional school day hours.
