Overview

With the continuing growth of technology in today’s society, teaching positions in virtual education are often more prevalent than those in traditional schools. But what is K-12 virtual education all about? How does it work? How does an educator know if a virtual school career is potentially a good fit?

While numerous teachers apply to online schools each year, most of the candidates do not possess adequate knowledge about this sector of education, let alone know the “ins and outs,” how various cyber schools and student populations differ, or what to expect as a potential virtual educator. "So, You Want to Teach in Your Pajamas – An Inside Guide to K-12 Virtual Education," is a potential applicant’s inside track on what to know about virtual education before applying for – or accepting – an online teaching position.

The author, Heather Ebert, is a veteran of virtual education, and, while she readily admits to not possessing statistical data from studies or research papers about virtual education, this personal narrative is as real as it gets. With insight from her own online teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experiences, including what she wishes first timers knew before considering a virtual teaching career, Heather provides a candid view into the obscure world of K-12 virtual education.

Meet the Author

Heather Ebert lives in a small town in central Ohio, with her husband, two young sons, and two dogs. They enjoy their little piece of land in the country, and, when Heather is not busy teaching, tutoring, and writing, they all enjoy boating, spending time as a family at home and out-and-about, and vacationing at the beach. In her free-time, Heather also enjoys cooking and reading.

Heather earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Adolescence to Young Adult Education (2005) and a Master of Education (2007) in Curriculum and Instruction from Ashland University. She taught her first two years at a traditional brick-and-mortar high school, then taught two years of virtual middle school, followed by 5+ years teaching virtual high school. Heather continues to grow in her knowledge and understanding of both mathematics and education by participating in additional graduate level courses and workshops as well as other professional development opportunities.
