"My mom was a teacher, so becoming one too was natural for me. We spend so much of our lives at work, and I like idea of spending that time working with children and families.
I enjoy the flexibility at Colorado Connections Academy because it allows me to collaborate with parents and get to know families better than I would at a bricks-and-mortar school. I talk to some parents more in a week than I used to in one semester at a traditional school. It's great that parents can work with their student to choose a schedule that works for the family. This environment is unique in that students also have the option of attending field trips all over the state.
Colorado Connections Academy offers students a high-quality education. While flexible, the program has expectations that teach students to be responsible and accountable. I believe that these expectations can be carried forward into their future educational choices and career choices."
