Yes. I teach a French I class for students in Tennessee. The program is called E4TN, with the E standing for effort, excellence, etc. The program is free to students in participating school districts and is designed primarily for use in small schools in which students would not have the opportunity to take certain classes. For instance, most of my students are in a gifted student program in a small middle school in the mountains of East Tennessee. I also have one 7th grader who has already taken high school English I and II through E4TN. The program is also used not only with gifted and advanced students but also with students who need credit recovery of core courses.

I teach for the Mississippi Virtual Public School. It is a relatively new program, but one that I am very excited about. I am a peer coach for the English teaching staff, as well as a teacher in the program. I am currently teaching a section of English III, but I have taught English IV and evaluated the choice of online course materials for the English I currriculum. I have taught students who are in advanced courses and want to take additional hours, students who are attempting to graduate on time or with their original class, and students who have for various reasons had to leave the traditional classroom. I have found the the online environment is one that opens a whole new concept of learning for most of these students. I think that it is one of the most promising opportunities for us to increase the number of students who graduate high school and go on to enjoy productive lives.

I'm not an online teacher but would very much like to break into the field.  I currently own a small, educational services business in Maine.  I teach literature/composition groups and mini courses on a variety of topics to elementary students. Does anyone think it's possible that I could turn this expertise into an online business?

Yes, there are opportunities for becoming an online teacher AND creating your own coursework as an online teacher. Most online universities at the collegate level require that you have a terminal (Ph.D. or Ed.D) degree. Some colleges only require a Masters degree in education with field experience. If you are interested in teaching at the HS level, you will need to have a current teaching certification.

The links to "how to teach online" change often, so I will not post them here, but if you "Google" "become an online professor" or "create your own online class" you will get multiple links. Beware: I have NEVER paid for registering as an online teacher or paid to "write" my curriculum. So.. beware... there are scams out there.

Thanks so much; I'll check out the links.  I have an M.Ed. and want to work with elementary-age children.  I imagine there are possibilities out there for me, too.

I have my Ed.S. right now, and am in my last course before starting my dissertation.  I'd LOVE to break into this field, but have never really found a way to get in.  I used Desire2Learn (D2L) as an online platform for my in-person classes.  We'd have supplementary material, and a means for submitting the work electronically.

If anyone teaches at an online school that is hiring, please let me know?  I'd absolutely be forever in your debt; teaching online would be a dream come true!  I've taken two degrees over the net (M.A. and Ed.S.) and am pursuing my third now.  I love the format, and think it allows us to focus on content rather than things like behavioral problems and so forth.

Thanks!

I teach at a public high school, but I also teach on-line classes through a university in Virginia--introduction to composition and literature (basically Eng 101 and 102). 

Next year, I will begin my Rank I classwork online in order to improve my earning potential and increase my retirement earnings.

Where is Maine?  I am from Gorham!  I havent lived there in over 10 years now but born and raised there. 

You absolutely can turn that into a business.  I have been teaching online for a few years now.  Check out ednak.com.  It is a community of online educators.  There are job leads, free training, discussions, etc. 

I am happy to answer your questions too!

Becky

I don't necessarily teach online, but I use many online tools for my courses. At UCLA, we have a tool called MOODLE (http://moodle.org/). Each course has it's one interactive website. I have all my students post at least one question to the readings before 8pm the night before class. This helps me gear the discussion topics better because most students prefer to not ask questions out loud. It has been a success for getting students to participate in class discussions. They can take quizzes on Moodle and download class documents.

Hi Emily.  I am a Mississippi high school math teacher and part-time college math teacher.  I have been teaching for 23 years and just had surgery that requires a year of recovery.  I am interested in teaching online.   Could you help me get in contact with the correct people at MVPS?  Thanks, Daphne Branning
