Andrea Holland is a high school English and journalism teacher at Kansas Connections Academy. She joined us in 2019 and

Why I Became a Teacher
I became a teacher because I had so much appreciation for my own when I was in school. I wanted to bring creativity, joy
and encouragement to other students’ lives just like they did for me.
The Online School Experience at Kansas Connections Academy
Our community is special because staff, parents and students all work together to be successful. We are in constant
communication with one another, and even though we are in our own homes, we feel connected.
I had always been a fan of educational options, so I like working for a school that provides an alternative to
traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms. The Kansas Connections Academy staff work as a team and support each other in a
way that I've never experienced before.
We are in constant communication with one another, and even though we are in our own homes, we feel connected.

I spend most of my spare time with my husband and three daughters. We like to have outdoor adventures, play with our dog
and cats, and watch movies. I also practice with my local women's tennis league.
