Hello. I am Alex Bird, and I teach an upper level English language class at Highlands. I earned my B.A. in English at CSU Sacramento I have taught at Highlands for two years. Before that, I substituted for k-12 public schools and taught summer reading classes. I enjoy teaching at Highlands because of the opportunities and support we provide through our educational and other services that are offered.
Before teaching, I have held a number of diverse jobs including construction and production work, whitewater raft guiding, and team building facilitation. I have done my best to incorporate all the lessons I have learned throughout these other jobs, most importantly clear communication and working together as a team. I also believe learning should be enjoyable and engaging.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, bike riding, cooking, skateboarding, snowboarding, and playing music. I love spending time outdoors and with my dog, Zelda.
