Mollie Pinkston is an elementary school student at Tennessee Connections Academy (TNCA). She attends our school along with her three siblings, Savannah, Brianna, and Jenna. Mollie has enjoyed her classes and has developed a passion for learning. She shares her story below:

“What I like most about Tennessee Connections Academy is the freedom of doing work at home. I can take a break whenever I want and complete my work at a time that works for me. When I am hungry, I can get something to eat and not get in trouble for leaving my seat or talking. I can also work ahead when I understand the material. The lessons are easy to follow on the computer. My teacher is nice and explains things so that the students understand what we are learning.”

Mollie’s favorite subjects at Tennessee Connections Academy are art and math. She says, “I love to draw and paint, and I am good at math. Once I learn something new, it becomes easy.”

Outside of school, Mollie plays basketball, swims, and runs cross-country. She enjoys spending time with her sisters and church friends. Together, they enjoy going to the water park, camping, hiking, horseback riding, and other outdoor activities.
