Why I Became a Teacher

“In high school, I was an average student. When taking Algebra 2, I worked hard to get an ‘A’ and realized that you don’t have to be smart to learn, you just need to work at it. That was when I wanted to be a teacher and show every student they can learn. I wanted to dispel the myth of school only being for ‘smart’ kids.


The Online School Experience at Kansas Connections Academy

My favorite part about Kansas Connections Academy is our students. Our students never cease to amaze me. They are such unique individuals, and it is so fun to get to know them and their passions.

Kansas Connections Academy works hard as a community to give our best. We don’t believe in giving up on a student; we expect excellence from ourselves as a staff and our students.
