Union Christian Global Academy

Certified Instructors



Instructors

UCGA teachers fill the role of an online facilitator for courses where an instructor is needed. Not only can online instruction fill teaching gaps for regular classes, but it also solves out-of-sequence scheduling conflicts for many students. Our teachers have a love for God, are knowledgeable and certified in their subject area, and want to help students succeed in their online classes. All teachers are available to respond to students, parents, and partner schools during regularly scheduled office hours, which occur five days per week.

Course lessons and tests are delivered securely online within the course—teachers do little or no lecturing, since it yields marginal benefits for most lessons in the online environment. By utilizing critical thinking skills, students complete assignments and take control of their learning in the online environment.  Teachers allow students the opportunity to improve throughout their learning experience and because they are interested in the success of the student, the instructor will hold the student accountable for the work contract created at the beginning of the course (also called a pace chart).

Online instructors care about the lives of their students and strive to develop positive relationships.  UCGA teachers will respond to students politely and with respect.  Our teachers will not only strive to help students academically, but also help them grow in their spiritual lives as well.  Each teacher is committed to be a living Christian example to their students.
