Why I Became a Teacher
Growing up, I succeeded in school because I was lucky enough to have many wonderful teachers who provided me with
positive learning experiences. I wanted to become a teacher to share my love of learning and encourage students to
become their best selves.
The Online School Experience at Oklahoma Connections Academy
A huge benefit of online school is the individualized attention we provide to students who are struggling. I’m better
able to meet their individual learning needs through one-on-one LiveLesson® sessions as a supplement small group
instruction in the resource setting. Students will learn time management and organizational skills, and they’ll also be
challenged to think critically and be active problem-solvers.
Our school community is special because we’re focused on supporting each other. No one is on their own to figure things
out. I value being part of a team of teachers, administrators, and parents who are dedicated to student success.
Message for Prospective Families Choosing Online School
If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional school that will allow for greater flexibility and more personalized
instruction, choose Oklahoma Connections Academy.

— Ms. Brookshire
I like to spend time outdoors. Our family enjoys hiking, fishing, and camping, so summer is our favorite time of year.
We live on a small farm with our chickens, pigs, and goats. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun.
