I knew I wanted to work with kids. This decision was inspired by my late grandmother who was a teacher. I also had a couple of amazing teachers when I was in school who were truly inspirational.
I love teaching at WYCA because of the flexibility it provides for students. Students can stand, jump, move, lie down, or sit comfortably while they are working on their schoolwork. I also love that I get to build connections not only with my students but also with their families, which is something I didn’t get to do in the brick-and-mortar setting. I enjoy being able to work with students one-on-one when they need it. Kids here don’t get lost as easily as students in brick-and-mortar settings because there are multiple people watching out for them all the time! Students have so much support in this setting, and they know that we are just a WebMail or phone call away.
