Sandy Smith and her daughter

Sandy Smith lives in DeWitt, Michigan, and served as Learning Coach for her daughter, a graduate of Great Lakes Cyber Academy (GLCA). She describes herself as “wearing many hats, including wife, mother, Learning Coach, teacher, cancer survivor, and advocate.” Below, she shares the story of why her family loved virtual school at GLCA.

“My husband and I chose virtual schooling for our children because we wanted to be highly involved in their education while still having access to teachers who specialize in specific areas. We loved the fact that we were able to customize our daughter’s academics at GLCA in a way that worked well for her—and that we had the time and flexibility to nurture her love for music (violin, piano and voice). The teachers were just a phone call, a WebMail message, or a LiveLesson® session away, and we were grateful for the time they have already invested in her life.”
