“It is very rewarding for me to work with young adults and support them in and outside
of school and help prepare them to be successful beyond high school,” says Ms.
Tacosik. “What I enjoy the most about working at Indiana Connections Career Academy is
the opportunity to work one-on-one with students to help them succeed. This also gives me a
chance to build a relationship with students, which helps them have the confidence to
improve in school. One major benefit is that the time I would have spent creating lessons is
spent on the phone working directly with students. I have more time to help students now,
and I love that.
“Everyone at Indiana Connections Career Academy feels like part of a family, from staff
to teachers to students to caretakers to leadership to the school board. We are all one big
family with a unified goal to help students prepare for and succeed in life beyond high
Every teacher at Indiana Connections Career Academy goes
above and beyond, and as long as students communicate with teachers and do what is
expected, students will obtain an excellent education.
