I can’t believe it’s been almost four years that I’ve been lucky enough to be teaching with Forest Trail Academy! You might notice that I stated “with” instead of “at”. It is “with” for me because I feel like I’m part of a team; we are peers and we help one another. We all work together towards the same goals. I realize that there is a general chain of command, but it doesn’t feel that way as a teacher. I feel I am just as much of an integral part of the team as those that are more senior than I. I can reach out to anyone within the school and ask for help (and I do!—asking for help is important so we can help all students!).
Aside from that, I truly love my students! They are amazing learners that bring a true worldly variety of experiences and cultures and thoughts. I learn from them and they learn from me. They are creative, intelligent, and intuitive. They come to us at FTA because they need help in one way or another and I am so proud and happy that FTA can deliver. Forest Trail Academy is an amazing school and in my opinion, is unmatched in what we can offer to students. I have grown as a teacher and honestly, I feel I am better prepared to face the future of education as a teacher here than in traditional educational settings. I am happy to be part of this team!!

Having the opportunity to work for Forest Trail Academy has been nothing short of a blessing . I work for an incredible school and even better staff. Coming to work never actually feels like… well work. I enjoy helping students and parents further their education and being a part of one of the best online schools. I also feel like I’m a valued member of the team, always included always aware of what’s new. FTA has always been there for me, I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the family.

I love being a part of Forest Trail Academy! We offer rigorous courses and have enthusiastic, highly trained instructors that offer support to our students from all over the country and beyond.
The students at Forest Trail Academy are top notch too. I have taught students on unique and interesting paths, like tennis players, gymnasts, equestrians. Some students have parents with exciting international jobs that keep the family on the move. Other students come from overseas and wish to enjoy a American education. And some students at Forest Trail Academy have simply discovered that a traditional school settings does not fit their needs.
I am proud to be part of a school that caters to these individuals and helps them on their educational journey. Forest Trail Academy is an amazing school!
