Every educational institution thinks they have the best teachers, but here at GetSetUp we have a combined total of 1000+ hours of teaching experience!
GetSetUp is made of teachers, founded by teachers, and our greatest product is our teachers, or as we like to call them our Guides. We harness the talent of retired educators and reskill them to become experts in new technologies, apps, and software so they can teach other 50+ adult learners these skills in self-paced live remote learning sessions to reach a segment of the population that is often overlooked.
In many ways, our Guides are some of the unsung heroes of the pandemic. When the crisis hit they rallied together for a 3-day Teacher Rapid Response GetSetUp Academy to ensure that our 40 retired educators were experts in the tools essential for our public school teachers to teach remotely during the corona crisis. Within three short days, they were ready and prepared to teach a week of courses with over 300+ hours of live onboarding and training so educators felt self-sufficient and confident to start teaching students remotely. Our Guides are the unsung heroes behind the public school teachers they helped to ensure students transitioned into online classes smoothly.
In addition, many have taken on themselves to teach some of 40+ FREE live online classes, in addition to our regular fee-based classes that we offered to 50+ adult learners to help get them up to speed quickly on essential technology for life in the stay-at-home situation. These included skills such as grocery delivery, telemedicine solutions, Zoom, Uber, and more. These heroes reach one room or small groups of about three rooms but provide confidence and vital skills to ensure these seniors' mental health and well-being.
Education is a lifelong process and teachers can be found all around us from the person showing us how to cook a new dish to the traditional teachers in the classroom setting. All of them deserve our appreciation! Many of our excellent GetSetUp Guides wear multiple teaching hats in both the classroom, the kitchen, and the community in addition to their work as Guides.
Our Guides are excellent teachers because they:
These are just 10 of the many many reasons our Guides mean so much to us every day, but especially as pandemic heroes promoting lifelong learning! We strongly believe that teachers and Guides need to be appreciated throughout our lives, daily, not just one week a year, so we never want to let an opportunity to thank them go by!
