Tiffany Jumper is a middle school teacher at Washington Connections Academy (WACA). She began teaching in 2017 and joined WACA in 2018. She earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics with an emphasis in middle school math at Western Governors University. Ms. Jumper explains what she loves about teaching at WACA below:
“I became a teacher because I am truly passionate about watching students learn and grow. My love of learning started at a young age. My grandmother owned a preschool, and I loved spending my summers working there and teaching young children at different ages and in different stages.
I love that WACA gives students the flexibility they need to be successful. Students are learning the skills they need to become self-starters and are discovering more about themselves. The best part: they won’t need to do it on their own. They have a full staff of teachers and administrators working together to ensure their success.
The number one benefit of teaching at an online school versus a brick-and-mortar school is having the freedom to help my students all throughout the day, versus just small time slots in a regular setting. I’m not lecturing all day, which means I can give more one-on-one support.
An education at WACA helps prepare students for a bright and successful future by delivering an amazing curriculum that is on a par with the public school system. WACA also helps prepare students for a bright future by teaching them how to be self-starters and to be self-sufficient.
If you are a parent and what you have tried and are trying isn’t working, give WACA a chance to meet your needs and expectations. Your student(s) will gain an invaluable learning experience, and you as their parent will learn more about their learning style than ever before.
I have a beautiful family with three children and two dogs! In my spare time I love to read and watch TV. During the summers, I love to get out of the house and do anything outdoorsy. Most of all I love to learn; soon I will be going back to school to earn my master’s degree in special education."
Our school community is so special because you are truly never alone. You always have someone you can turn to for help in any given situation.
