Why I Became a Teacher
I became a teacher because I love learning just as much as teaching. I enjoy investigating, brainstorming, and
discussing topics with students. I want them to enjoy the learning process as much as I do.
The Benefits of K‒12 Online Learning
The benefit of teaching at an online school versus a brick-and-mortar school is that the instruction is tailored to meet
each student’s needs. Arkansas Connections Academy provides a unique opportunity for every student to learn in their own
way and on their own time.
An education at Arkansas Connections Academy prepares students for a successful future. Students become good time
managers and independent learners. They develop technology skills and learn how to socialize appropriately on digital
platforms. This experience helps students evolve with the changing world they live in.
