When I started talking about the decision to leave the traditional classroom and teach online, so many ears perked up, and the questions came pouring in. That makes me think:
- There are more people like me who want to work in their sweatpants, and to that I say AMEN.
- Are we finally figuring out how to have our cake and eat it, too, by working from home with our kids in the way? I mean, by our sides?
- Is it possible that public education continues to introduce so many headaches for teachers that some of us are straight sprinting from our jobs?
I don’t know the answers to those questions, and I’m praying the latter isn’t YES, but with the interest that resulted from my first piece in mind, I created a list of what I think are pros and cons of teaching online. Because We Are Teachers is a classy place, I didn’t want to include something like the time I took a meeting during a dicey bathroom incident as a pro, but believe you me: HUGE PRO.
Just remember to turn off your webcam. You’re welcome.
