Hello! My name is Alexis, and I am thrilled to be your teacher. I grew up in a small coastal town in Oregon and received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Language Teaching from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!). Growing up, I had the privilege of being part of a big multicultural family that included four girls and two boys. Two of my sisters and I were adopted from Cambodia, and my other two sisters were adopted from China.
One of my passions is exploring nature, whether it is through hiking, camping, or just soaking up the sunshine. When I’m not outside or in the classroom, you can usually find me curled up with a good book, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, running, or practicing yoga. I enjoy challenging myself, exploring different countries and cultures, and meeting new people. Let’s work together to make this a fantastic semester!
