Hello everyone! My name is Alexa Conti and I am currently perusing my dual certification in Early Grades (Pre-K through 4th grade) and Special Education (Pre-K through 8th grade) at Arcadia University.
After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Communications at West Chester University I began a job in property management and leasing. After about two years I realized that I wanted to have a career that was more meaningful and something that I looked forward to going to each and every day. I think that I have known I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age when I played “school” in my basement, but I got caught up in the fear of not finding a job and the notion that “teachers don’t get paid enough”. I believe that the detour I took when getting to where I am today only makes me appreciate teaching more and in the end will make me a better teacher! I completely quit my corporate job and am now going to graduate school full time and working as a nanny for two adorable little boys.
Some of my other interests include my puppy Olive, the beach, trying new restaurants, and going to see plays and musicals.
I am extremely excited to start this journey of my life and can’t wait to have the opportunity to teach kids every day!
