Alexandra grew up on the southern coast of Massachusetts and received both her B.A. in Psychology and M.A.T degree from a small university just outside of Boston. She loves rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, playing viola & piano, and cuddling with her cats. Alexandra wants to inspire students to develop and maintain positive social relationships and identities, express comfort and tolerance with all people, and relate to people as individuals. She also wants to encourage students to lead their own learning and lead others in learning, and to inquire as scientists and evaluate as mathematicians in their everyday lives. Alexandra is overjoyed and honored to be part of a school community that values: Empathy and Caring, The Natural World, Service and Compassion, Diversity and Inclusion, Success And Failure, Responsibility for Learning, The Having of Wonderful Ideas, Collaboration & Competition, Solitude and Reflection, and The Primacy of Self Discovery.
