Who is Alex?
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe in creating an environment in my business education classroom that makes it easy for all students to want to learn. Whether they are a high achiever or a challenged learner, my classroom will be a bright spot in their day where they feel inspired to learn something of value. My students will be engaged while they experiment with emerging educational technologies that teach them not only business, but writing and math skills. Finally, I believe when teachers, parents and community come together to support educational efforts, school becomes a tool that provides social mobility for students, and allows them to move onto the college or career of their choice, fully equipped with both the knowledge and skills needed to succeed.
My Career Goals
I hope to one day be the chair/head of my school's business department, as long as I could still teach in the classroom. I plan to get my Master's and teach at a local community college in my Summer months. If I ever decided to leave secondary education, I would study to obtain my doctorate and become a professor of teacher education - so I can share my love of teaching with future educators.
