In response to AVOID VipKids (Robert)

I am a VIPKID teacher who has seizures from high anxiety and I have a service dog who prevents my anxiety from going that high, and also alerts me to a seizure 3-5 minutes before they happen. I had a parent complain to VIPKID about my service dog. VIPKID contacted me (they didn't know he was a service dog, and only heard the parent complain about the dog being a distraction as the reason why their child misbehaved in class). VIPKID suggested that I not use the dog as a prop anymore or to have it in class anymore. I explained to them that the child was misbehaving badly, and my dog responded to me because he recognized rising anxiety, and that he was doing his job as a service dog, and not distracting the child (he was laying low beneath the camera, but the top of his back could be seen... he was not bobbing up and down or being the "show"). The child was already being difficult before my dog started working on me. I told VIPKID that he was a service dog and I needed him. It had been just an excuse for the parent to blame my dog instead of their child for misbehaving because it was an assessment test, and I could not give the child any points since she would not answer anything. VIPKID then prevented me from getting negative feedback from the parent, and told me to not worry that they had my back, to let them know if I needed anything! I was supported! However, I was NOT supported on a facebook VIPKID teacher group that I left. I was ridiculed for being a teacher who needed a service dog, my disability was put down, and told that I should get another job if I was "that" disabled. People can be so horrible, but I believe that it will come back on those type of people. VIPKID showed me less prejudice than some of my own co-workers on there. I think VIPKID is looking for teachers who CARE about their children, and want teachers who have heart AND ability. They want kind people who are not negative, but are constructive in a positive way, and work things out in a loving way. I know... UNHEARD OF in this world! I heard so many people complain on the forums about VIPKID, and yes... VIPKID is ran by humans, it's going to make mistakes, but they do care, and are trying. I've seen so many changes they have made because they are listening to all of the complaints of the teachers. I've seen complaints of so many things, but I haven't had those issues with VIPKID. I've been with them for 372 days, taught 626 students, 2138 classes, and have a 5.0 apple rating. I have won a few incentives, including a $30.00 make your own prop challenge, $26.89 PC gift box prize money, 8.50 holiday warm-up incentive, $138 gold rush incentive. I do wonder if I am getting all of my new Trial student sign ups or not, because I used to get a lot of bonus Trial sign up money, then nothing, and I know that some of those students REALLY had fun and liked their experience, but I haven't had that many Trial students either. I really don't know, but with anxiety and seizure issues, it helps me to allow God to work things out when I can't. Some battles are just not win-able for my own strength, yet I have seen things turn around. *PEACE*
