Why I Became a Teacher

I wanted to become a teacher because I grew up with teachers who pushed me to be the absolute best version of myself. That attitude and determination truly stuck with me and I wanted to be able to reciprocate that feeling.


The Online School Experience at Falcon View Connections Academy

I enjoy being able to work with a wide variety of students, providing them with multiple pathways to achieving their goals. Falcon View Connections Academy provides students with necessary communication and advocacy skills that will offer long-term benefits, no matter what path they take.

I also appreciate the school community’s willingness to support and uplift each other. While transition can be new and intimidating, everyone is here to help students and families in any way you can imagine.
