If you have teaching experience and want to get involved in the online learning community, then we might have a writing job for you.

Connections Academy, a division of the Pearson Online and Blended Learning group, is hiring a remote health curriculum writer.

The online school provides free, public education for grades K-12. This role calls for a writer who can create curricula for health classes at the high school level.

As a curriculum writer, you will not only be creating new lesson plans and assessments, but also reviewing any existing plans and updating them as needed.

Candidates with teaching experience and health education background are encouraged to apply. This is a work-from-home, independent contractor position, so make sure you have awesome time management skills and the drive to get your work done independently.

And while this is a remote position, the successful candidate will be working with other teams, such as editorial, so good communication is key.
