The Online School Experience at Utah Connections Academy

According to Ms. Shimmin, “I get to work more one-on-one with students now that I teach online. … Parents thinking of enrolling a child in this school should keep in mind that, here, their child will be able to make connections [with other students and with teachers] like no other way.”

“I love to visit southern Utah … and to camp. I also love reading and listening to music,” she says. 

“I love the personal connections I make with students [while] teaching online.”
