Why I Became a Teacher

I became a teacher to help children reach their potential and discover that learning can also be fun. I enjoy the supportive atmosphere at Iowa Connections Academy, and the flexibility it provides to students, parents, and staff.


The Online School Experience at Iowa Connections Academy

Every student has a great support system behind them, ensuring they succeed and helping them in any way they need it. Teachers and Learning Coaches collaborate on ways to best help the student, which gives them the greatest chance for success.


Message for Prospective Families Choosing Online School

If you’re looking for a flexible option that ensures your student succeeds, this is the school for you. Teachers and other staff are always willing to help, and your child’s success is our number one priority. Our Facebook page is also a great resource for families to ask questions and meet others in the community.
