When I first accepted a job with Florida Virtual School as a Kindergarten teacher (almost 3 years ago), I thought there was no way I’d be able to make the same connections with my students as I did in a brick-and-mortar school. I don’t see my students every day and my role as their teacher looks different than a traditional classroom teacher.
My students are homeschool students and I support the home educator, who is typically the student’s mom or dad (although we also have grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. that serve as home educators). The main chunk of our elementary curriculum is done at home by the student with their home educator.
Wondering what it’s like to be a home educator? Learn more about what to expect in this video!
