How Nadia Goes for Her Gold with Online Education
Nadia and her mother had a hard time ‘trying to fit it all in one day.’ As an entrepreneurial mom, her schedule is dictated by clients and she knew she couldn’t plan curriculum for her daughter on top of an already busy schedule. In addition to her own career, her daughter, Nadia, is a figure skater who trains daily, intensifying schedule challenges.
K12‘s online education has provided Nadia and her mother with an exceptional curriculum and a flexible schedule so they are able to flourish in the activities they love and manage their daily schedule. The ability to compete on the ice and academically gives them the ability to ‘Go For Their Gold!’
