For Fourth Grade Teacher Alaia Cobb, seeing students put the pieces together is a big reason why she loves being an educator.
“My favorite part about teaching 4th grade is seeing my students make the connection between different math skills.” she said. “I love that moment when everything clicks into place and they get to say, ‘Ms. Cobb I just had my EUREKA moment!'”
Cobb said Athlos Academy’s Performance Character traits, like grit and integrity, allow students to understand what it takes to be an exemplary leader and focus on truly understanding how those traits can be implemented into daily habits.
Athlos Academy is an excellent choice for parents, Cobb said, because the Athlos model allows students to express their individualism and foster strengths, while also taking ownership of their learning by collaborating with other students.
“We are so passionate about teaching all of these remarkable students. Student can feel as special as they truly are,” she said. “This is such an amazing group of students and they’ve grown exponentially not only as scholars but as individuals.”
Athlos Academy is a K-8, tuition-free charter school with a mission to help students build their minds, bodies, and character. We are now accepting enrollment applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
