As your child’s Learning Coach, you’ve accomplished a lot so far.
You and your student have created an inviting, inspiring learning space, checked off all the boxes on the school supplies list, and tested the technology to make sure it’s ready to go.
Together, you worked out a school-day schedule that is tailored to your child’s learning preferences; keeps them focused by setting start and finish times for lessons and homework; and includes time for family events, exercise, and extracurricular activities.
That’s only the beginning though.
Over the course of your student’s online schooling, as their Learning Coach you will be a cheerleader, mentor, and guide. You will have a significant role in shaping their educational achievement, personal growth, and life-skills development. And you will face challenges.
Yet, through it all, you will earn a deep sense of fulfillment as your efforts pay off in your student’s progress and success.
If you’re not sure where to start school online, we’ve curated articles from across the Connections Academy Resource Hub to help you lean into your new role.
Remember, your student’s teacher is always your best resource. They want your student to thrive as much as you do, and they’re committed to providing the insights, answers, and expertise to nurture your child’s development.
