Shandell is the mother and Learning Coach of a student at Kansas Connections Academy (KCA). Having experienced virtual schools in the past, Shandell was very impressed with KCA’s high-quality curriculum and the program’s flexibility. She tells her story below:
"I am Shandell Timken. I am married to Darren. We have two wonderful kids, Ryne and Jassandra. Before Connections Academy, my kids were attending a different virtual school, which ultimately founded Connections Academy. Our former virtual school was so impressed with Connections Academy’s curriculum that they showed it to us. We also loved it!
Our virtual school decided to merge with Connections Academy, making Kansas Connections Academy, and we made the merge with them. Kansas Connections Academy works for our family because of the flexibility it offers. The flexibility works with our children’s health care needs."
I chose Kansas Connections Academy for my children because of the flexibility for my children’s health care needs, the caring teachers, and the impressive curriculum.
