OUR CULTURE

Why did you choose to teach at 21CCCS?

I liked the flexibility I had as a teacher to really individualize and customize each student’s education.  I also love the Learning Coach role that I’m able to fulfill with a smaller group of students.

What is your favorite thing about working at 21CCCS?

Our school environment is my favorite thing about 21CCCS.  It’s such an atmosphere of teamwork and I am so appreciative of the opportunities to work with all of my colleagues, whether or not they’re in my cohort or department.  The environment that the staff creates ultimately impacts our students and their families – we believe that it takes a village to raise a child and embrace the opportunity to work so closely with our families. 

What is your proudest moment from working at 21CCCS?

My proudest moment, every year, is graduation day.  Being able to share that day with our students and families and share in the celebration is so special.  I well up with pride as our student speakers share how our school had such a positive impact on their lives and how our unique education has afforded our students the opportunity to pursue their dreams in and out of the classroom.

What makes 21CCCS a unique place to work?

The staff and faculty of 21CCCS make our school such a unique and special place to work.  Everyone is so willing to lend a hand whenever possible – this is a great example to set for our students.  Our school is a community and family that is truly interested in the success of everyone!

Why did you choose to teach at 21CCCS?

I chose 21CCCS because I was able to put personal expertise into practice and integrate technology into my teaching.  The school provides cutting edge technology for the teachers and the students and I was excited by the opportunity to utilize it.

What is your proudest moment from working at 21CCCS?

21CCCS being ranked #1 among all PA cyber schools for back-to-back years!  It’s a testament to the quality of our curriculum and how invested the staff is in the success of our students. Being elected a Top Workplace was very exciting as well.

What makes 21CCCS a unique place to work?

At 21CCCS, we are able to interact with individual students and parents more frequently than we would in a traditional school environment.  This allows us to establish close relationships with students and their families.

Why did you choose to teach at 21CCCS?

I came to 21CCCS after being a stay-at-home dad for about two years. I felt that being a stay-at-home dad was the best job in the world and told that to the CEO during my interview. He convinced me that the culture at 21CCCS would be worth it.  After working here, I found out it was the truth.

What is your proudest moment from working at 21CCCS?

I once had a discussion with a ninth grader. She wanted to be a ballet dancer and her mother had heard I used to teach at a ballet school. We discussed how hard life can be as a dancer for possibly little reward. I told her that she did an excellent job in my science class and should consider a career in science instead. Her mother reminded me of that conversation at her graduation from 21CCCS and the student has since gone on to graduate from MIT in pre-med.

What advice would you offer someone coming to work at 21CCCS?

You will probably be overwhelmed by the technology. Don’t worry; everyone is when he or she starts out. Reach out to your neighbors and ask for help.

Why did you choose to teach at 21CCCS?

First, I think I was really interested in cyber teaching. It is something that I was unfamiliar with, but wanted to experience. After having my first and second interviews I just felt like it was the right place for me. Both interviews showed me that while I may not see my students everyday, I interact with them daily and even some hourly. Having the opportunity to build relationships with students and families  is a big part of why I became an educator.

What is your favorite thing about working at 21CCCS?

I love that each day is something new. We have schedules of classes, but I am not teaching the same thing for seven classes in a row. Instead I might be helping one of my students with an English Lit assignment because he or she needs clarification on the directions or I can be working one on one with a student in my government class for an hour. Having this type of schedule makes us more approachable to students because they know that there isn’t only five minutes at the end of class to ask me questions.
