Hi! My name is Alexis Jex and I will be your child’s fifth grade teacher this year. This is ESLA’s fourth year and my fourth year as well! I am so excited to be part of something so ground breaking! I have wanted to be a teacher since I was three years old; so much so that my grandpa built a classroom in our basement when I was young.
Success in education is like an open book; don’t close it before it’s done!” My teaching philosophy is based around this quote that I have created from past experiences and influences, as well as my love for music. I try to understand where my students are coming from and understanding that there are so many outside factors that affect them. I understand that I will not be able to read their whole life story, and that I am only a chapter in their book of life. However, I want that chapter (our chapter) to be meaningful to them as an individual. I hold family values extremely high and know that everyone’s “family” is unique. In my classroom, I hope to create a family like atmosphere. For that reason, we are a family of 5th graders living and learning from one another. We will listen with open minds, and respect one another.
