"I became a teacher because I love the profession and love working with young adults. My dad was also an educator, so a part of me wanted to follow in his footsteps. One thing I love at WCA is the partnership between the student, Learning Coach, and teacher. I believe the main benefit of teaching at an online school versus in a traditional school setting is the constant communication between school and home. Everyone needs to be involved for the success of the student. Communication is a key component of a successful education, and I truly believe that positive communication exists at an online school compared to a traditional school setting.
One cool thing about WCA's school community is the fact that students and Learning Coaches are willing to help new students and Learning Coaches. I’ve heard many different cases of families building a relationship with each other that lasts for years.
