Angie Ledgerwood is an elementary school teacher at Oklahoma Connections Academy (OKCA). She began teaching in 1997 and joined the team at Connections Academy in 2014. Ms. Ledgerwood earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Tulsa. She also holds a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Oklahoma State University.
Ms. Ledgerwood wanted to become a teacher to make a difference in the world. She says, “I love teaching at OKCA because of the faculty, staff, and families. The benefit of teaching at an online school versus a bricks-and-mortar school is that I am actually teaching, rather than dealing with distractions and behavioral issues.
The education at OKCA helps prepare my students for a bright and successful future; they will be way ahead of most when it comes to using technology. I would say to parents who are considering enrolling their students in OKCA, though we are an online school, it takes an active Learning Coach for your child to be successful. You will need to be present with your child going through each lesson and it takes time, patience, and organization. But it’s worth it.”
