Checkout this teacher appreciation week highlights video. When asked about their favorite thing about iSucceed, students often say it’s the teachers. Here’s a mini tribute from last week. Teacher Appreciation Week video
We had a great time exploring the campus and learning about college life at BSU! The tour was really awesome and crazy fun! Mrs. Allison and I took some pictures and here they are! Checkout the Facebook photo album!
Hello! I am the special education and study lab teacher in Eastern Idaho. I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary and special education. I worked in a brick and mortar school for three years in Pocatello and have been teaching in online for the past 10 years in both elementary and high school special education. I am also a state certified Behavioral Therapist who has worked extensively with children who have developmental and behavioral disabilities. This is my second year with iSucceed Virtual High School and I am looking forward to a great year. I live on five acres near Blackfoot, Idaho with my three children Shelby, 16, Tabby, 15, and Jett, 6. I love to spend time riding and training my horses and working on home improvement projects on my house and yard.
I did what I thought I couldn’t do… I graduated from high school! If it wasn’t for iSucceed being there throughout my struggles, I would have received a GED instead of an Idaho diploma.
Hi, my name is Gina, I am an iSucceed VHS graduate. I also have more than 30 medical diagnoses. I went from being a high school dropout to proud member of iSucceed’s 2010 graduating class.
I decided to drop out of high school in the fall of 2008 because traditional school, and the special education team, wasn’t working for me. At first, I decided to pursue a GED but felt a “missing part” of myself slowly fading away. Before I took the GED test, I decided to look for an online high school as an alternative.
As soon as I started my first semester at iSucceed Virtual High School, my family and I knew that I would receive a high school diploma. And in June of 2010, I did. If it wasn’t for iSucceed being there throughout my struggles, I would have received a GED instead of an Idaho diploma.
To me, and to prospective employers, a high school diploma means that I stuck with school even though it was a big struggle. It shows that I didn’t fall prey to quitting, despite unique challenges.
Today I serve on the Board of Directors at a non-profit organization called Idaho Parents Unlimited (IPUL). I also consider myself a gamer and geek, and am currently pursuing a career in the gaming industry. I’ve learned a lot, and am eager to apply and share my life lessons.
Gina, thank you for sharing your story with us, and for allowing us to provide a successful pathway for you! Sincerely, you friends at iSucceed
