Elementary Educator

About Me

Hello and welcome to the world of Elementary Education, as lived by me - Alexandra Midland. Currently a lead First Grade Teacher at an amazing public school in Arlington, Virginia, I am a lifelong learner dedicated to instilling an intrinsic drive for knowledge across the classroom and throughout the greater learning community. Although education has always been a driving passion in my life, it wasn't always my profession. My background is diverse and rich with non-traditional experience, ranging from yoga and dance to online media, international study & travel, and even fashion. Along with my warm, up-beat attitude and out-of-the-box, quirky personality, my unique background brings to the classroom a fresh outlook on education and new meaning to the ideas of teaching and learning. 

My Personal Educational Philosophy

Education, to me, stretches far beyond the brick-and-mortar institutions of learning. For this reason, as a fashion-world professional turned classroom connoisseur, I strive to use education as a platform for building the next generation of great thinkers and innovators. Education in my classroom is founded by a passion for knowledge, an undying curiosity fulfilled only by discovering the new and unusual, and a commitment to the awesome adventure that is unique to lifelong learning. In short, I strive to provide an everlasting education to the whole child.

Lifelong Learning

"The more that you read, the more you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." 

-Dr. Seuss, I Can Read with My Eyes Shut

Learning doesn't just open doors - it opens minds and paves the way for a more tolerant and empathetic world! This quote is framed in our classroom as a constant reminder of the awesome power of knowledge.
