Meet The Team
Alex – Founder/Editor
Alex is a Kindergarten teacher with a passion for making learning fun and engaging. She brought that passion over to her own corner of the internet when The Kindergarten Connection (The Letters of Literacy’s sister site) had its first blog post in 2014.
Alex especially has a love of literacy, and knew she wanted to share even more fun learning activities for kids. So, The Letters of Literacy was born and posted it’s first article in 2016.
Alex has earned a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and Masters Degrees in Special Education and Curriculum Design. She is a night owl, coffee lover, and owns over 2,000 children’s books. She lives with her husband and their big black Labrador, Tank in the Pacific Northwest.
