Alexa here! Very glad to be able to join the team as an Urban Teachers. I will be supporting the 7th and 8th grade English classes here at DCI and working in Mike Thomas’ classroom. I am excited to be part of an IB community of learners and leaders where I will be able get to know our diverse students. As an Urban Teacher, I am working towards my Masters in Education this year from Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, I earned my BA in Political Science from Barnard College, Columbia University in New York City. As a polyglot in my free time, I hope to continue to working on my languages here at DCI; so far I speak English and Spanish from birth, and have learned French in the IB, learned Hindi and Portuguese in college, and wish to continue to hone these as I go. I would also love to pick up Chinese from my fellow teachers too, xie, xie!
