The number of Pasco County students taking online courses grows dramatically each year, but science teacher Staci Kreitz says people still possess misconceptions about what online education means. “I’m not sitting around in my pajamas making it an easy day,” Kreitz said on a Pasco eSchool video shown to the school board last week. Although she and her students aren’t face to face, she said they have regular interaction and she is available for a phone call from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Like regular classroom teachers, she spends time on the weekends grading or answering emails. Kreitz, who teaches eight science subjects, worked with more than 300 students this year.
