• Who is Mrs. Alexander?
    I am excited to be working with your family this year.  The 2019-2020 school year will mark my thirteenth year at Chaparral Elementary but I have been an educator for 27 years.  I have taught a variety of grade levels and subjects, but find my role as gifted specialist to be the most rewarding position I have had.
    I am a proud wife and mother.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Mike, for 21 years.  We have three amazing children, two girls and a boy.  We live in the Higley community.  Our daughters are a senior and junior at Williams Field High School.   Our son is a 4th grader at Chaparral Elementary.
    I have lived my whole life in Arizona.  I was raised in a small farming community at the base of South Mountain.  My parents still live there today.  Growing up, there was a great deal of freedom to explore the outdoors on bikes or horseback.  I have two older brothers and a younger sister, also a teacher.  We are all fortunate to live in Arizona and get together as a family regularly.
    I grew up watching and cheering for ASU during football season.  It was a tradition and a way of life in my family, so it was not a surprise when I received my bachelor's and master's degrees from Arizona State University. I am an avid Sun Devil fan!

    Spending time with my family is very important to me.  We enjoy activities that we can do together as a family, whether it is exploring Arizona, playing cooperative board games, or playing with our three dogs, Scrappy, Sweetie and Mr. D.  I also enjoy crafting, reading, and photography. 
    I look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you better, too!
