The Gazette: Thank you to online school

Originally published in The Gazette– June 28, 2018

As the school year comes to an end, I would like to thank the teachers and staff at Pikes Peak Online School (PPOS) for helping my daughter find her voice.

Abby has oral apraxia, which is a condition where the connection between brain and tongue is slower than average. This makes pronunciation a challenge, and Abby would regularly become frustrated when she couldn’t get her words out.

Since enrolling at PPOS, I have seen Abby grow as a leader thanks to the various opportunities the school has provided. PPOS is a positive, encouraging environment where she is able to gain confidence in her learning abilities. Abby is now an honor roll student — a first for her — and she is very involved with volunteering at a local therapeutic riding center.

I am so proud to watch my daughter thrive at PPOS!
