This year, our family has made a few changes. I began working as a VIPKid teacher in February. With my ankle still recovering from the September surgery and the doctors telling me that it could be up to 2 years for a full recovery, I have had to “slow down” a few our activities. However, no one said that I couldn’t teach from the comfort of my own dining room. And have fun while I worked.
As of July 3rd, I have officially been a teacher with them for 151 days and taught over 1030 classes to 408 different students.
The biggest change is my sleeping schedule. As a teacher for Chinese students, I have to work on a China clock, not an American clock. The best classes for Arizona are from 4-6am. So those are the classes that I teach. I also teach the 3:30 am classes and the 6am-6:30 class. For the summer, I have evenings opened up 4 days a week and teach Friday nights regularly.
I love that most of my schedule is before the crew even gets up and going in the morning. That has made it the perfect job for me. I can still run our homestead, still homeschool and most of all can still spend time with my children who very much welcome an afternoon nap with mom. 🙂
