Alex has become our go-to guy for all things rocks, gems and minerals.  He shares his knowledge with our class once a week and is starting to branch out and teach lessons to the preschool classes on a weekly basis as well.  He is a great teacher; patient, kind, involved, pulling kids in who stray, using manipulatives, examples and sharing interesting facts and texts.  Amalie always says, “this is so neat” (as well as many other students) and she often hunts him down to ask him questions about found geological treasures from the big yard. 

Thank you Alex for all your knowledge and teaching ability.  You are a great inspiration to us all.
