According to Allison, “At Falcon View Connections Academy, our kids are not competing with different learning levels or with disruptive behaviors like they did in the brick-and-mortar classroom environment.”
Allison and Sean are their children’s Learning Coaches, which Allison appreciates since this enables them to play a more active role in their kids’ education and success. “I love being able to oversee and participate in the content being taught — and if I’m not able to understand it, there are many resources and teachers available to assist,” she said.
During COVID, when the children had to learn remotely, Allison said they discovered there was much more time in the day to do activities the kids naturally enjoyed. With the flexible nature of the school’s virtual classroom, Allison said they have the time to create many other learning opportunities once their schoolwork is done.
The family farm, for example, offers the children what Allison calls their “playground” space or their “physical education” class. The kids have learned how to change oil, help with the animals, participate in preparing meals and baking, and take on building or sewing projects.
