#8 The Teacher Who Lives in a Van – Flexibility of an Online School

Hannah’s a UKVS Science Teacher, she’s also a New Zealander; which means she LOVES TO TRAVEL.  She lives in her van and moves from beautiful location to location.  We often talk about how home schooling fits in to the student’s way of life, on this episode you’ll hear that it also works for our teachers too.

Hannah’s worldly knowledge is invaluable to her students – You can see more about her on “Our Team” page of the website: https://ukvirtualschool.co.uk/our-team/hannah/

Key take aways

Hannah integrates her current location into her lessons where possible.  It keeps the content fresh and creates a memorable learning experience.
Hannah finds working with kids is "dynamic".  Often adults have established their way of thinking and won't change, where as kids are open to fresh new perspectives.
This modern way of schooling requires a good internet connection.  Hannah's done lessons from all over world... in the alps, in the middle of nowhere in India, and on a Welsh mountain, without any problems.  The biggest connection issues have always come in major cities in the UK!
Hannah loves working at UKVS for MANY reasons, but one of the biggest is because the class sizes are so small (a maximum of 10).  This ensures that all her students needs are catered for, all of the time.
