Michigan Connections Academy has revived my love for teaching. I can spend my time working with teachers, parents, and students to give my students the best education and support I can. I feel valued by my grade level, teams, and administrators. I am encouraged while also given the autonomy to do my job. Teaching online gives me more flexibility in creating my work schedule while still being able to be a mom and have a life outside of the school day.
Michigan Connections Academy helps students be successful by giving them opportunities to interact with teachers and peers in a more individualized setting. Students who attend Michigan Connections Academy are bound for greatness as they have to be organized, prepared, motivated, and willing to put in the time and effort to do well. Virtual schooling can be difficult as it is easy to get sidetracked and off task. However, the students who can stay focused and do well in their studies show grit and tenacity that will serve them well in their future endeavors.
