Why I Became a Teacher
I believe a good education is necessary to fully appreciate the things that make up a good life. Being an educator is
about helping people become the best versions of themselves.
The Online School Experience at Kansas Connections Academy
I enjoy the students and the staff. The people at Kansas Connections Academy are unique individuals who enjoy finding
new and better ways of doing things, more so than any other school I've been involved with. This culture of trying new
things inspires me to learn and improve every day.
The Benefits of K-12 Online Learning
The space to try new ways of teaching and learning is very empowering. I think the students feel it too, and they know
that they can try different school schedules if they want to. They can have a math day, a science day, or they can find
the hours each day that works best for them. They can experiment with these options and learn about themselves, which is
one major point of education. Teachers have flexibility too, in terms of the tools and the techniques we use, and we
collaborate relentlessly to continually improve our practice.
