Call Me (Maybe): Teacher Support for Virtual School Families

Teacher Support in Virtual School

We all have days when we’re just not at our best, even Learning Coaches. Whether you don’t feel well or are simply not on your “A game,” sometimes it seems like those Learning Coach superpowers have left you. You may have taken all the right steps: setting a daily routine, assisting your student with lessons, and keeping him or her motivated and on track. But still, your child struggles with schoolwork. Where can you turn? With virtual school, you have a remarkably powerful resource: your child’s online teachers!

Remember, helping kids learn is their specialty! The questions that stump you are probably ones they’ve heard many times before—and chances are, your child’s teachers will even have great answers! And although students may have a million reasons why they don’t want to call the teacher for help, you should stick to your guns. Your student’s teacher is your go-to person for just about any assistance you or your student might need!

Take a look at the song lyrics below, written by Mr. Keller, a high school English teacher from our cyber school in Pennsylvania, about the helpful role teachers play. Then watch and enjoy his video for yourself!

If there’s anything that you want,
If there’s anything I can do,
Then call me or send a WebMail,
And I’ll get back to you.

I know everything that you need
To get an A every single day.
So call me or send a WebMail,
And I’ll get back to you.

I’ve got books with all the answers,
And I’ll give hints to you.
I grade all the tests and papers,
And I give extra credit, too!

If there’s anything that you want,
If there’s anything I can do,
Then call me or send a WebMail,
And I’ll get back to you.
And that goes for your parents, too!
