Meet Our Georgia Connections Academy School Leader

Heather Robinson

Executive Director

Heather Robinson

"My vision is that the Georgia Connections Academy will be a nurturing, scholarly school environment that creates a quality innovative and exciting learning experience for the families it serves.

I will always be a teacher at heart and have taught high school mathematics in both the traditional and online classrooms. Prior to becoming the lead principal of Georgia Connections Academy, I was the assistant principal at Georgia Virtual School, a school program operated through the Georgia Department of Education. As an online instructor and administrator, my passion for teaching and learning online has grown into a sincere belief that students’ learning can truly be enhanced and expanded in an online classroom. Virtual classrooms meet students’ needs in a way that is unique, authentic, and interesting.

Georgia Connections Academy is changing the educational landscape for students in Georgia, and I am proud to be a part of this change!"
