Middle School

Sana Lowery is a TEC Connections Academy student whose busy schedule includes ballet, piano, and violin. She appreciates the school’s flexible approach to education because it allows her to take part in, and enjoy, these activities. Here, in Sana’s own words, is her schedule.

“Monday is an easygoing day for me since I don’t have to go anywhere. I start my school day attending an on-camera algebra LiveLesson® session, then do assignments in my planner. After that, I practice piano and violin. I finish my work doing math homework for a class I attend every Saturday. 

Tuesday is a bit busier. I have to finish all my schoolwork before 2:00 p.m. so I can get ready to leave for ballet class. Sometimes I finish it, and sometimes I don’t. I usually don’t try to rush things. 

On Wednesday, I stay home pretty much the whole day. I’ll finish any schoolwork left over from the day before. At 6:00 p.m., I get ready for my violin lesson. It’s online, which I find more flexible, but sometimes it’s challenging due to sound lag.

Thursday is my busiest day, mainly because I have to finish my schoolwork by 2:00 p.m. so I can go to a piano lesson. I finish my piano lesson at around 5:00 p.m., then go to my ballet class. It ends around 7:30 p.m., and I get home about 8:00 p.m.

Friday is when I have many LiveLesson sessions for school. At around 4:30 p.m., I get ready for math tutoring online. Depending on how much work I have, I’ll usually finish in 45 minutes. I go to sleep earlier on Fridays since I have to wake up early on Saturdays.

On Saturday, I leave the house around 8:00 a.m. to attend my math class. It’s a whopping four hours long, but it goes by quickly when you’re having fun with your classmates and are working on several quizzes every week. I do algebra for two and a half hours and geometry for one and a half hours. Once I’m done with class, I finally get a rest! 

On Sunday, I usually stay home and relax until Monday rolls around and I do everything all over again. It is super fun though, and I feel like I get a lot done every single day. Because of TEC Connections Academy, I’m able to do all the activities I want! I can play piano for many more hours and do ballet without having to worry if I’m going to make it on time after school. It’s so much fun to have such a lively day every single day.”

I am thankful I found TEC Connections Academy. Because it’s so flexible, I’m able to have my super-busy schedule.
