Suzette Fernandez is an elementary school teacher at Washington Connections Academy (WACA). She began teaching in 1999 and joined WACA in 2016. She received her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and a master’s degree in teaching from the University of Puget Sound. She shares more about her history and love of teaching below:
“I became a teacher to empower students with the knowledge that they can accomplish anything. At WACA, I love the one-on-one attention I can provide to students, getting to know the entire family, and the flexibility our school provides.
An education at WACA helps prepare students to plan, question, problem-solve, and be independent thinkers. They rely on themselves to get tasks accomplished. These are invaluable tools for a successful life after high school.
If you are ready to personalize your student’s education, to allow them to focus on topics they thrive on, and to spend more time on concepts they need help in, and if you’re ready for a change, then WACA is a great alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar schools.
When I am not teaching I love spending time with my husband and two energetic boys. As long as I am with them, I am guaranteed to be having a blast!”
