“What I enjoy most would be the flexibility of the school and the classes,” she says. “Whenever I’m feeling bad, I can take the time I need to rest, and then I can get back to the assignments I need to do.”
Thanks to caring teachers, a curriculum specifically designed for online learning and classes that help students build resilience alongside knowledge, Hannah is no longer falling behind. In fact, she’s thriving.
“It’s so neat to see what she is accomplishing every day,” her mother says. And Hannah’s mother would know. She’s Hannah’s Learning Coach.
Receiving Support Alongside Independence
As Hannah’s learning coach, Hannah’s mom gets to be a part of her daughter’s success. She keeps track of Hannah’s attendance and makes sure she’s completed her work. And while Hannah remains responsible for her studies and enjoys plenty of independence, her mom is there to lend a hand when Hannah needs it.
At first, Hannah’s mother thought she might struggle to support Hannah’s learning. But she says the parent resources provided by Connections Academy helped her embrace the change to online learning and gain the confidence to help her child learn and grow.
Hannah’s father is equally impressed with the ways Connections Academy has guided Hannah and helped the entire family find their way forward. “It was a perfect fit,” he says.
For Hannah’s family, Connections Academy has been the lifeline they needed during a difficult time. Now, despite illness, Hannah is on a path to a successful future.
