For Gregory, Inspire was a big change, but a very positive one. He has a learning disability called dysgraphia. It makes writing by hand very difficult, but with Connections Academy, most of his work was done with a computer. This made school much easier for him. He says, 'I loved Inspire because I could work when it was convenient for me, not when I was expected to. What I liked most was all the help I got from my teachers, especially Mr. Wagner. He set aside time for me each week, and helped me in the areas of school that were difficult for me. I felt like the teachers really cared about me personally.
As far as his future ambitions, he states, "I would like to be a chef and own my own restaurant, where I can cook unique foods and try a lot of different things. I also want to continue to learn American Sign Language and help the deaf."
