Marianne Vickers is amazing. Vickers is a special education teacher at Tennessee Virtual Academy who goes above and beyond the call of teaching with our special students.
She works with each one of these students until they understand the lessons. We have watched our son, Sean, steadily learn and grow so much within these past two years. We greatly appreciate all of Vickers’ hard work and love for her students.
We enrolled Sean at TNVA for him to have the best possible academic experience. Having teachers like Vickers is exactly why we transferred to virtual school and why we stay.
While brick-and-mortar schools across the country celebrate their teachers, I want our online teachers to know how much they are appreciated. They make developing relationships a priority in the online platform, and our students benefit from this personalized approach.
Thank you, Ms. Vickers and TNVA!
