    I will be starting at an online school very soon. I'm really excited! I enjoyed brick and mortar when I did that but I think virtual is a better fit for me for a huge number of reasons. I think the best part about it will be less classroom/behavior management. I will conference with kids/parents 1:1 mostly over video and on the phone.

    Looking forward to hearing all about your adventures! I still have a bunch of my resources, so please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, especially if you're an ELA teacher.

    Terrific! My biggest suggestion is to ask a lot of questions at your interview. Ask them about their Learning Management System (basically, their online platform), how they maintain / enforce student engagement, and the socioeconomic status of their student population.
