I... put in an application. Here's for luck.
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.

Has anyone worked for Responsive Ed --a charter school online ? Comprehend Academy is in grades 3 - 12. What is your experience with if?
Good question for the Texas folks here! Anyone?

I'm glad you are being a blessing to your community.

Does anyone here know about the essay writing service provided by papermatic? Need a review or share your experience?
Since the members of AtoZ are almost all teachers or teachers in training, we do NOT advise anyone to use essay writing services. We consider those vehicles for cheating.

Would disagree with the previous comment. Asking a scientific writer, a professional essay writing service or assignment writers to write or an editor to edit your scientific publication is OK, especially for non-native speakers, provided this is made completely transparent and indicated in the acknowledgements. I don't prohibit my students to use such services.

I currently work at a detention center, but I'm thinking I don't really have the personality for it. I think I would do better as an online educator, but is there a legitimate way to do it without going back to school?
Are you licensed and highly qualified in your content area? Is your state one that has online charter schools as an option for students? Those are the main questions. Not every state has online K-12 education, but those that do tend to have fairly rigorous requirements for their teachers due to how they are audited.
I'm highly qualified in my content area, but I heard that I was required to go back and get an online teaching certification. I just don't want to do that right now. School is expensive, and I don't know where I"m going with this job.
I taught online for seven years without additional certification or endorsements, so it isn't every state or every school. What state are you in? If I saw correctly that you are in Alabama, your state has a few K12 franchises there. Check out their website and see what they may have in your area. You have nothing to lose by looking.

Hi! I have an interview this week for an online teacher position. I'm so nervous. What can I expect at the interview and a silly question, what should I wear?
Did you get the job? And with what K-12 school? How do you like it?
I'm assuming your interview is in person and not online. In that case, wear what you would to any other kind of teaching interview. You might be asked to show your ability using computer programs such as Microsoft Office. Is the school a franchise of a larger network such as K12, or is it an independent school?
It is a public cyber school. The interview will sort-of be in person. It's a video conference from one office to the main office.
How come you left online teaching? Are you teaching at a brick and mortar school now?
Definitely dress professionally! I ask mostly because some interviews are done online specifically to see how you would handle being on webcam. In this case, it's blended, so a suit top with fuzzy slippers is out.
Currently, I'm in an in-person setting (I've always hated the term "brick and mortar") but with the high hopes to help implement an online component for our students. It wasn't specifically leaving online teaching, but moving from one school to another to open some new opportunities for myself (including going for my administrative license).
