Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Alexander

Hello there and welcome to fantastic 5th grade!  I am so excited to be your teacher this year. Here is a little background on me: I grew up in South Jersey, but have also lived in Florida, England, and France. I have resided in Virginia since 2010. I live with my husband and our daughter (college senior / elementary ed major) and son (college junior / accounting major), and our little cat. 
Besides 5th grade (which is, of course, the best), I have also taught kindergarten, 3rd grade, 7th grade, and 8th grade. I hold a Master's degree in education from Trenton State College (now known as The College of New Jersey). I love to read, and am the author of a little book on the Tudor dynasty, which was published several years ago.
I'm a strong believer in staying well-organized to be your best in school! Making sure that your organizational skills are sharp will help you greatly in 5th grade, and prepare you well for middle school and beyond. We will work on this a lot in class! I also strongly encourage problem-solving and personal responsibility. They're essential skills to develop as you close out elementary school, and I am here to support your efforts along the way. You can do this!
