The flexibility of the online education experience allows families the opportunity
to take advantage of managing their schedules to meet their personal priorities. I always intended to be a
teacher because I believe that all students can learn, I enjoy helping students learn, and I myself enjoy
learning. My time at Oklahoma Connections Academy has been a learning experience. I sincerely hope that I
have been able to help families help their students learn, as well.“
