Why I Became a Teacher

I worked as a scientist before starting a career in education and discovered that I was born to be a teacher. My passion in life is to help students achieve success and better their future by obtaining the skills necessary to succeed in whatever profession they choose. Not everyone learns the same way - I love helping others figure out how they learn so they can better themselves.

The Online School Experience at Wyoming Connections Academy

One of my favorite aspects of working here is learning about the awesome electives our students are taking. I wish my high school had offered courses like some of the ones we do! Students here can take classes geared toward what they truly want to do, instead of just being in a seat to fill a class.

Parents who are thinking of enrolling their children here should keep in mind that the entire Wyoming Connections Academy team is persistent and dedicated to their students and their students’ success.

Personal Interests

Science is another passion of mine and yes, I own up to being a science nerd. Spending time with family is my favorite thing to do. My husband is a firefighter and medic for the Laramie Fire Department. Our son is a sweet, yet spunky toddler who keeps us on our toes. My three stepsons are typical teenagers who love Takis and TikTok. We love the Space Coast, NASA, NASCAR, camping, listening to music in our Zen garden, and binge-watching documentaries!

“Everyone at this school has a genuine care and concern not just for our students, but for our families as well.”
