Why I Became an Educator
"I am so thrilled to be part of the Wyoming Connections Academy team. I began at Wyoming Connections Academy in the summer of 2014 and have thoroughly working in an on-line learning environment and at Wyoming Connections Academy specifically. I came to my career as a school counselor in a sort of roundabout way. After graduating high school, I spent 10 years as an active duty member of the United States military. When I completed that service, I sought a bachelor's degree in political science from Illinois State University, with the idea that I would work in international relations.
When exploring the status of education policy as part of that degree, the path of my life changed; I discovered I was hooked on a career in education! I realized how incredibly important it is to have dedicated educators and the incredible impact those educators can have on students' lives. At that point, I decided that I would pursue my Master's of Education in School Counseling from Slipper Rock University. A few years’ experience in a brick and mortar school, and I landed upon the awesome opportunity to become Wyoming Connections Academy 's school counselor.
"We are very proud of the work we do and of our students and families!"
