“I decided to become a teacher in my elementary years. My mother is involved in education and has worked for schools all my life, and I decided I enjoyed the lifestyle. What’s more is that I loved being around teachers all the time. I found that I could relate to teachers and other school staff. I also love working with students, and I am passionate about reading and writing, two very necessary skills in English language arts.
What I love about teaching with Washington Connections Academy is the flexibility we are able to offer students. Students dictate their own schedules and choose study times that work best for them. I also love that I am in communication with students all across the state, which is something quite impossible to do in a brick-and-mortar classroom, where you are in a particular district at a particular location.
