Kristin Amons is a Learning Coach for her daughter Kaylee, a high school student at TEC Connections Academy Commonwealth Virtual School (TECCA). She lives in Rutland, Massachusetts with her family. Kristin values TECCA for providing her daughter with flexibility, approachable teachers, and the ability to connect with students her own age in a virtual classroom. She shares her story below.
“Our daughter has been in enrolled in TECCA since it opened in 2014. She is thriving at her new school because she is able to take courses that are at her level and complete them at her own pace without the distractions and drama of traditional school. At TECCA, we can schedule family time and vacations without being restricted to the school-year calendar, Kaylee can customize her schedule each day, breaks are as frequent or infrequent as they need to be, and the teachers are approachable and responsive to Kaylee’s needs.
She especially enjoys the Live Lesson® sessions, where she can connect with other students her age and bring what she has learned that week to life. TECCA is the perfect alternative to homeschool for our family, as we can rest assured that state-certified teachers and an award-winning curriculum are at Kaylee’s fingertips each day. As parents, we have become more involved in our daughter’s learning process. Along the way, we have also learned a thing or two ourselves.”
