After a year of teaching, Ms. Remmes took two years off to play professional soccer in France. She began teaching again at Prospect Hill Academy Charter School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and then spent three years at the British Ski Academy in Les Houches, France, as the math instructor for gifted ski racers. Ms. Remmes helped the racers keep up with their school work while they were away training with their club and country.
When asked what she likes about teaching at Connections Academy, Ms. Remmes said, “The teachers at MCA consistently and willingly work and support each other. Since it’s a small school, it’s very easy to collaborate with other teachers about student needs. Additionally, our student body and teaching staff are very diverse, which creates more room for students and teachers to be able to learn from one another.
