Ms. Dilley shares more about her passion for education below:
“I have known since childhood that teaching was for me as I love helping, guiding, coaching, and learning from kids! What I love most about Washington Connections Academy is that we offer an option for kids who would otherwise not have another option.
“Unlike a traditional school, online school provides flexibility in both physicality and instruction. WACA is able to provide consistent curriculum across programs and teachers. We also offer our community the ability to connect with students and colleagues in more intentional ways.
“The rigor and accountability at Washington Connections Academy are second to no other high school in Washington!”
When she is not teaching, Ms. Dilley enjoys hiking, running, and traveling with her kids and dog.
