Why I Became a Teacher

I became a teacher by accident. I loved my science classes, but I knew that I could not work in a laboratory every day. I enjoyed working with people and thought that this would be a great fit for me. I took my first education class, helping students and I immediately became very passionate about wanting to make a change in students' lives. 

 

The Online School Experience at Great River Connections Academy

I enjoy teaching on an on-line platform. I feel it allows me to work with students where they are instead of where the entire class is at. Self-paced learning is amazing and Great River Connections Academy gives many opportunities for students and families to take advantage of it. LiveLesson® is a great opportunity for students to chat with each other at the beginning and end of class.

Great River Connections Academy teaches students independent learning, time management and how to deal with distractions. Students become disciplined to complete their work, and this helps them decide if they want to further their education at the college level or go directly into the work force.

Self-paced learning is amazing, and Great River Connections Academy gives many opportunities for students and families to take advantage of it.
