Why I Became A Teacher

“I became an educator because I feel that all students should have the opportunity to learn about our past and avoid the mistakes their ancestors made. I want ALL of my students to contribute positively to our society, and I hope by teaching them all of our history, as uncomfortable as it may be, that it helps them make good choices.

The Online School Experience at Washington Connections Academy

“Washington Connections Academy offers a welcoming community for families. We have an open-door policy, so anyone can reach out to our office staff, teachers, and school director with questions or concerns. We communicate with our students and guardians often, so they know what to expect in our school. We also offer a variety of tools for our families and staff, so they are able to have the best experience possible.

One of my favorite things about being an online teacher at Washington Connections Academy is that I am able to get to know my students and personalize their learning experience. When my students need something done differently from a typical classroom, I am able to customize their learning so that they benefit. Students who struggled with a traditional education tend to do better in our school because I have the ability to individualize instruction, giving them an equal opportunity to learn.

Message for Prospective Families Choosing Online School

Most people believe that the relationships at online school aren’t as strong as they are at a brick-and-mortar school. That simply isn’t true. My students open up more and engage in classroom activities because they feel safer in our virtual environment versus being in a classroom. Washington Connections Academy is a place where your children can learn in a safe environment and where they will gain the confidence to spread their wings.

"Watching my students grow and spread their wings is an amazing feeling."

— Ms. Horsley

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to Disneyland, reading, listening to music, going to concerts, watching movies, and hanging out with my “kittie spawns”!
