What I love about teaching at Michigan Connections Academy is the freedom and flexibility I have with my students and teaching to each and every one of them. I get to have that one-on-one time with them. When it’s just the two of us in the LiveLesson® room, I can get to know them really well; I can find out what they like to do away from school and then I can use that information to engage them in their studies. When I can relate the learning that we are doing to the video game they like the most, or the sport they play, or the place they love to vacation, then I can make more powerful connections to our curriculum.
An education at Michigan Connections Academy is exactly like an education anywhere else, in the respect that the students will get out of it precisely what they put into it. Now, if they can work our program as it is designed, and if they have sufficient support at home from their Learning Coach, then our program helps to set them up for success in the respect that they are building a foundation of time-management skills, discipline, numerous computer skills, and independence.
