Location! Location! Location!
What Does Location, Location, Location Mean?
It means identical homes can increase or decrease in value due to location. It's repeated three times for emphasis, and so you will remember the phrase. It's the number one rule in real estate, and it's often the most overlooked rule. The best locations are those in…Continue

This week I had the privilege of visiting my first classroom. The room looked and smelled exactly the same as it did back in 1993. I, however, look completely different. I think differently too.
I was flooded with memories as I walked around. I began thinking of my mistakes and successes in…Continue

What a wild ride it’s been! The past week has proved both exciting and challenging. Becoming an online teacher is not for the faint of heart. Not if you are becoming an online teacher in a company as fast-growing as Aventa Learning.
After spending a couple weeks eating up my Mentor's online courses, I tip-tapped my fingers, charged and waiting at the gate, for my first course to open up. The training program was so complete and the time I was given to review another teacher’s…

After being transferred from a Part-Time to a Full-Time Teacher position at Aventa Learning, I was wisked off to meet my mentor. I had been itching to meet this person since the day I had finished my Teacher Training Course, which I had completed 10 days ahead of schedule, resulting in lots of nothing-to-do-but-self-teach time. I spent my "down-time" well, making Avatars and practicing using Sparkling Text for my online classroom Announcements Page, but I didn't want to just focus on the…Continue

My Aventa Learning Interview for a part-time teaching position took place on November 29th, 2010. The interview consisted of a conference call from two Human Resource representatives, one of whom would become my English Department Instructional Supervisor (who knew?). Both friendly, they eased me into a questioning regarding my pedagogical knowledge and I answered the best I could with full confidence in what I had to say. My IS threw me for a loop with one question, "How will you physically…Continue

I wasn't expecting my "interview" to actually be a screening call, but that is exactly what happened. A human resource specialist called me at a predesignated hour and day and made it clear this contact was a screening call she would hand over to supervisors at Aventa Learning, to which end, I MAY receive a callbackand. She went on to ask me a set of pointed questions: What did I think was the biggest barrier to an online student's learning? Why did I want to become an online educator? And…Continue

I've been trying to land a job with KC Distance Learning for over a year. My interest in online education began three years ago, when I chose to homeschool my oldest child who had recently been given an IEP and was still not doing so hot in the classroom. Since I was a teacher and had just recently left my position due to a relocation, I was jobless and needing a focus. I decided to take on the education of my own child and after careful research into the world of homeschool curriculum I…Continue
