Dana Patton began teaching in 2015 and joined Kansas Connections Academy in 2020. She is a Learning Support Teacher for students in high school.
I always loved helping others in my classrooms when I was young and wanted to be a teacher since I was 8 years old. I enjoy helping young people understand academics, and who they are and what they want to do in life.
The team of teachers and staff at this school are the most supportive and caring group of people I’ve ever worked with. I also love connecting with families and being part of their educational journey. We have fantastic families we work with daily. There’s an amazing team of teachers and staff here who work with students to help everyone achieve success.
