Why I Became a Teacher

I wasn’t the greatest student in high school, but I had a math teacher who was supportive and patient with me. She had a huge impact on my life, inspiring me to do the same for others. I want young people to know they don’t have to be the smartest or most athletic to fit in and be successful.


The Online School Experience at Iowa Connections Academy

The various backgrounds and experiences that students, families, and staff have make our school community special. We’re all from different corners of the state and get to bring unique experiences to our school.

A benefit of online learning is the one-on-one interaction. Teachers get to work with students who need help and watch them become successful.

The Benefits of K‒12 Online Learning

A benefit of online learning is the one-on-one interaction. Teachers get to work with students who need help and watch them become successful. The flexibility allows our students and families to not only work on school at their own pace but also to take part in activities that they’re involved in, such as sports and dance.


Message for Prospective Families Choosing Online School

Teachers are here to help. This is the most supportive system I’ve been around in education. If you want and need help, it’s always available.
