I joined the Connections Academy family because of the personalized educational experience that it provides each student. My personal philosophy on education is that we all have a natural desire to learn at any age given inspiration, curiosity, and knowledge. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree from Brigham Young University in Mathematics Education. When I’m not assisting our Connections Academy families, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two cats, Boomba and Zoomba.

I joined the Connections Academy family because I love working with families and passionate about education. My personal philosophy on education is that every student is unique and can be mentored to discover their academic talents and passions. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in Communications. When I’m not assisting our Connections Academy families, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, drinking lots of Diet Coke and traveling.

Derwin Andaya - Family Connections Coordinator

I joined the Connections Academy family because a flexible and accessible on-line education shouldn’t be a challenge for students or families. My personal philosophy on education is that all students have an innate ability and drive to learn. One’s location and personal circumstances should not limit a child’s potential. I earned my Masters in Education from Western Governors University in Instructional Design. When I’m not assisting our Connections Academy families, I enjoy spending time with family and attending live concerts and comedy events. Thank you for letting me work with your family to ensure your student’s success.

I earned my bachelor degree in Psychology from the University of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN. When I’m not assisting our Connections Academy families, I enjoy hiking and kayaking with my husband and two teenage children. Thank you for letting me work with your family to ensure your student’s success!

I joined the Connections Academy family because I believe that all students can learn in an environment that is just right for them. My personal philosophy on education is that in order to build monuments (our students), we have to do what it takes. I am committed to helping students succeed. I earned my B.A. from Saint Paul’s College in English and my M.A. from Virginia State University in English/Literature. When I’m not assisting our Connections Academy families, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, and shopping.
