Class Acts of 2014: Getting an Early Start on Her Future

This series, Class Acts of 2014, features inspiring online education graduates with promising futures and showcases how individualized, award-winning curriculum and technology enabled these students’ success.

Eilisanne began dancing when she was 3 years old, and her passion grew throughout the years. From the fundamentals of ballet, tap, jazz, and pointe to hip hop and contemporary, Eilisanne performed them all. At age 11, she even started teaching primary ballet, tap, and jazz.

As she became busier with dance, she needed a flexible schedule to accommodate it. She turned to online education.

Through K12’s Washington Virtual Academies, Eilisanne was able to prosper in both her dancing and educational pursuits. Success came easy in reading and writing courses, but she also discovered a new interest in history.

“Mr. Hoff’s World Literature and American Literature classes were my best memories of K12,” Eilisanne says. “He worked well with the students, and was very motivating.” So motivating, that she has decided to pursue a degree in Classical Civilizations with the goal of becoming a college professor. She’ll pursue a minor in dance, of course.

Earning her degree won’t take long. Online education allowed Eilisanne to advance quickly and take many dual enrollment courses to get an early start on college. In fact, she’ll start in the fall as a junior at the University of Alabama.

Congratulations, Eilisanne! Your dedication and determination are admirable qualities that will continue to benefit you in all of your future endeavors. Roll tide!
