I am Looking for a Few Great Volunteers
(teachers, school admins, students, parents, anyone interested in education) who are interested in sharing their experience, expertise, education, viewpoints, tools, resources, articles, links, advise, etc. appropriate for an educational blog aimed at helping parents and children in multiple areas:
IEP’s, special education, NCLB, No Child Left Behind, school climate, education in general, ESL, English Second Language, problems, solutions, teachers, school administrators, and anyone interested in education and today’s schools. This site has been online since around 2004, but used somewhat commercially for educator’s private tutoring/educational consulting business. Owner wants to change the goal of site to become REAL resources for all concerned with valuable links, resources, support, Q/A, sources of “venting”, sharing perspectives, offering honest feedback and advice, etc.
I would love to get people who are truly passionate, honest, upfront and LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER opportunities which can be used as building block and online reputation builder (very valuable to college applications and resumes). First and foremost, you MUST be honest, ethical, upfront and REAL. No advertising, insincerity or junk fillers needed.
Owner is also local SEO marketer and supporter of many causes including small businesses, ethics, children and women (people) rights, speaking the truth and walking the talk. Part of ethical network of similar minded people/businesses , which has helped launch very successful outcomes [The Making a Difference Network]. If looking to further a writing career, think Google authorship, large following. The opportunities are limitless.
If interested, the bulleted list below is a guide for what I’m looking for. Answer any or all, but please include the ones with **marked”.
You can also write me with questions only. I only want really interested, compassionate, committed, truthful and able persons to respond. My last attempt gained me multiple scammers, dishonest businesses, advertisers, job hunters and SEO marketers. PLEASE don’t respond if any of those.
I am not looking for “experts” with Master’s Degree or even high school. I have young readers-former students who will write their reviews and pros/cons of things like apps, tools, websites, policies, etc. Some parents write me, so frustrated and scared for their child in a what they consider an untruthful, unhelpful school system and need to vent or ask for help. Some educators want to write (not using their whole names or titles for fear of retaliation) and response to parent/student questions/concerns honestly but without losing their jobs. Some education admins use full credentials and write responses and articles. I want variety-and if necessary, can set up “alias” account for you if using real name somewhat feels threatening. Thank you!!
