About Me

I enjoy hip hop dance and all things music. I always make sure my classes and projects are completed on time so that I can fit in my twice-weekly dance classes and my weekly piano and guitar lessons. I’m thankful that my school schedule is more flexible so that I have time to focus on my passions.

My typical schedule looks like:

  • Start classes at 9 a.m. and do all LiveLessons
  • Take a short break every 2-3 hours
  • Practice piano, guitar, and dance
  • Attend music lesson at 2:30 p.m.
  • Finish classes and LiveLessons for the day
  • Get in my daily exercise
  • Attend hip hop dance class at 6:30 p.m.

My Online Middle School Experience

I enjoy the more personalized, challenging curriculum as well as the flexibility. I have an excellent relationship with my teachers. I talk to them regularly when they call to check in as well as in daily LiveLessons. I really like my teachers at Minnesota Connections Academy and always have.

Algebra is one of my favorite subjects because I enjoy working with numbers. I also enjoy being a member of the National Junior Honor Society because it keeps me more involved and it's fun to organize different events for our school.

I love Connections Academy because of the excellent curriculum, great teachers, and flexible schedule that allows my extracurricular activities.
