Build an online school in USA
Organized by: Jodie Jiang
EVENT DATE Aug 10, 2016
What push me to build this online school?
Many teachers have the same experience with Felicity. Felicity is one of newly graduated students and like most job seekers, she has applied many jobs as elementary school teachers but a half year past, no any response. She worries a lot. Felicity has pretty good skills in teaching kids, like many teachers in USA. The key is, they deserve a good job but they only ignore the potential opportunities in another country. Building this online school, let hundreds of good teachers in US get stable jobs and thousands of students in China find good teachers, that’s my purpose.
Project benefit for American teachers, they need not relocate to find a job, just stay at home teaching online and get stable jobs.
To offer hundreds of young teachers who cannot find jobs in USA stable and better pay jobs.
-To offer low paid teachers a part time job to improve life quality.
-To offer retired teachers a chance of teaching online to enjoy life.
-To start a best cultural communication platform.
Project benefit for students:
-400 thousand elementary schools and 200 million 5-15 years old
-Current situation is that, most American teachers come to China teaching several months or a year then back to US, while those pupils and schools wish teachers could teach them for a long time. It’s not easy for remote area schools to hire American teachers, now online teaching could solve this problem.
How to use the fundraising? Pay project early stage cost.
-Develop online teaching software and pay internet maintenance fee.
-Pay American teachers’ salary.
-Pay online courses development fee.
-Pay marketing development and media fee in China.
Introduce of myself:
I am Jodie, the founder of iglooKidz school. I am currently a MBA student in Loyola Marymount University. I had experience in many industries. I ever worked in New Balance as a senior financial analyst, and worked in Ernst& Young as a senior auditor…but to education cause, to give children better courses and give teachers better experience is always my passion. I love this cause from my deep heart. When I see parents and children giving good comments to a good teacher, I am much happier than them because I help them find the good teachers and I develop the courses that fits to students. That’s why I regards this online school as my lifelong pursuing career! Thanks for your support!
