Why I Became an Educator
As a lifelong learner, I have always valued education. I have always felt that teaching is a way to contribute something
of importance to our society.
The Online School Experience at Falcon View Connections Academy
Since working at Falcon View Connections Academy, I have been so impressed by the helpful and understanding staff that I
get to call my coworkers. Every step of the way, I have had people reach out to me and make me feel welcome. I can tell
that the staff members here are dedicated to delivering quality education that is convenient for students and their
families, and it’s exciting to get to be a part of that!
I love being a part of a school that allows families an alternative to traditional education models. The curriculum
delivered by Falcon View Connections Academy is modern and relevant to today’s world.
Falcon View Connections Academy cares about students and wants to see them succeed. The staff is welcoming, helpful, and
will go out of their way to be of assistance.

The Benefits of K–12 Online Learning
The online environment allows me more time to individualize and differentiate instruction for specific students. A
flexible day allows students to meet with me in a one-on-one or small group setting at a time that works best for them.
Being a part of an online school experience provides students with important 21st-century skills. Students who attend
our school also learn important skills in organization, time management, technology, and more.
I live in a small Southern Minnesota community with my husband and kids. I love reading—sci-fi and poetry are currently
my favorite genres. I also love spending time outside walking, gardening, or hiking. I recently became certified in
teaching yoga, and I love to be active in other ways as well.
