Connections Academy in 2019. She currently

Why I Became a
I became a teacher because I have a passion for helping students
grow. It’s amazing to watch a new learner blossom into an
independent, life-long learner. That is what I hope to instill
in my students, a love for learning new things, and the
confidence to expand their minds. The way students interact with
the world is always changing. As an educator, I am constantly
looking for the best ways to reach out to students, change up my
teaching methods, and inspire students to imagine, create, and
learn new things.
The Benefits of
K-12 Online Learning
Teachers get to work closely with families and students. Learning has
always begun at home and parents are the first teachers. Online,
I get to work with families to support their students. Also, I
help students learn new things by adjusting the curriculum to
meet their individual needs. Finally, I work with a very
collaborative group of educators. We communicate with each other
quickly to get questions answered or grow new ideas that will
benefit the school experience for our students.
