So there's an opportunity to join the teaching profession since it's expected to expand online, which requires a much higher teacher-to-student ratio (ideally 1:1). 88% of the user group covered in Pearson Survey support the move to online, so the demand for more teachers online is likely to come up very soon.

I would've liked to know more about the traits that differentiate the lady in Highline Public School from her colleagues, and make her a great fit for online instruction.

Pearson may like to consider this.
