Alex is a passionate curriculum developer, educator, and communicator. Alex received her MEd from the High Meadows Graduate School in collaboration with MIT in 2020. Her graduate capstone project explored the impact of shared narrative on classroom learning. Since then, she has worked in a variety of different roles in education, including as a classroom teacher, community educator, and instructional designer. Most recently, Alex worked with Advanced Functional Fabrics of America to create a free, publicly available engineering curriculum in which students utilize the engineering design process to create a working functional fabric prototype.

Fun fact: Alex has a cat named Floyd P. Henderson, Esquire (and he is a very good boy).
