Alex Eren

Seventh and Eighth Grade Homeroom, Fifth-Eighth Grade Science Teacher

Growing up in Annapolis, Maryland was the perfect spot for Alex to develop her passion for nature and science. Remembering the exact moment on an excursion with her 7th grade class, baiting crab pots to catch dinner on the Chesapeake Bay, when she decided then and there that she would never work a typical desk job. Ever since, Alex has explored the intricate world of environmental education, conservation and adventure. Alex worked on farms in Italy, grew hydroponics in Oklahoma, provided logistics for Outward Bound, and paddled 500 miles around the DelMarVa Peninsula collecting water quality data for local classrooms. Alex is a proud graduate from the college of Natural Resources at Virginia Tech and received her General Science Teaching Certification through the Washington, D.C. Teaching Fellows. Having taught in a variety of classrooms since 2010, from outdoor ed on work boats, to public schools in the inner city, Alex is continuing to learn and develop engaging, hands-on science curriculum for her students. Alex believes in providing a safe, creative, and encouraging space for each and every person who enters her classroom.

Outside of school, you can find Alex in her garden, exploring trails and waterfalls with her husband and two huskies (and maybe soon their new kitten!), painting, playing beach volleyball, or just daydreaming of where she will explore next.
