  • Teacher: Alesia
  • Areas of expertise: Pre-K thru 6th
  • Education: University of Phoenix-BSIT, Alternative Teaching Certificate through Region III
  • Interests: I thoroughly enjoy children, teaching, and the love of learning.
  • Skills: Special training in elementary grade level classes.
  • Associations: Licensed Teacher in Texas. Pre-K teacher for 7 years and Kindergarten teacher for 3.
  • Issues I care about: I care about children growing in a loving environment where they are motivated to thrive and develop goals.

My love of children started at a young age being the oldest of six kids. When I became a mother, I then learned the love of being a mother. When I began teaching other children, I learned the love of my "extended" children through the classroom. It is a true joy to see them grow and watch their many successes.
