Although she was just finishing her Ph.D in Education, Andrea Burnes of Rome, GA, had come to her wits’ end with the teaching world. The politics of education had taken over the joy she had once felt teaching. So she was ready for something new when a friend introduced her to On Location Education, a company that provides teachers for child actors.
Andrea loves the flexibility and diversity that goes along with being an on-the-set teacher. “Every day is different,” she says. “The kids are great and so appreciative.
Being an on-set teacher opens up to Georgia teachers another venue to continue what they love and to be professionally challenged. Andrea works on the actors’ schedules, and follows the curriculum provided by their home school.
“This opportunity has changed my life,” she says. “I love what I do.”
