Why Choose Eastlake High School in Colorado Springs?
Just as Eastlake meets students where they are and supports them with alternative personalized learning journeys, Megan Blake chose tutoring at Eastlake as a custom-fit pathway to her personal and professional goals.
“As a single mom to a young child, I needed to find a better alternative to an extra job. I needed something that I could do from home while still being available to my son. Once Ms. CJ and I talked about her vision for this program, we both agreed to give it a go. Since then, we have had great success.”
Have you ever considered that your determination and grit could inspire a teacher someday? Yes, we consider Megan as an essential ingredient for our secret sauce for success, in addition to our incredibly motivated students.
“My very first success story was a young woman who was pregnant with a beautiful baby girl. She was determined to graduate before her baby was born. At the time, it seemed so hard because she wasn't even on the radar for graduation since she was so far off due to credits. I told her that if she put in the work, I would too and help her reach her goal. She was amazing and so determined to make her daughter proud. She worked so hard and reached her goal to graduate. She is still an inspiration.”
