In the virtual classroom, Connections Academy teachers are specially trained to teach online and provide support for the entire learning family every step of the way, so you won’t need a Coach's Guide to Teaching because dedicated and certified teachers will be there to make sure your child is progressing, understanding lessons, and receiving additional help if they are struggling. Teachers connect with students through phone, WebMail messages, and LiveLesson® sessions, adjusting the type of interaction based on student needs.
At home, Learning Coaches are responsible for structuring their child’s school day, monitoring attendance, staying in touch with teachers by phone or email, and providing one-on-one support with learning activities. As Learning Coaches, you can step out of the role of teacher and into a support role where you can be there for your student every step of the way by providing the structure and guidance they need as they navigate their academic career.
