  • More than 20 hours of in-person and online training in our curriculum, Connexus® digital learning platform, online learning techniques, and virtual classroom management.
  • Ongoing mentorship from one of our experienced Connections Learning teachers.
  • Specialized iSafe® training in best practices for using online curriculum, ensuring student Internet safety, and addressing cyber-bullying.
