2019 IPS Teacher of the Year: Alexandria Stewart
Center for Inquiry School 70
Alexandria has been a teacher for nearly five years. She currently teaches middle school at CFI 70. She helped design and implement a new middle school program. Stewart believes learning is social and best stimulated when students question, experiment, bounce ideas off one another and become confident taking risks.
"Teaching is one of the most challenging professions with little monetary reward. The rewards come in other ways like inspiring a student to find a passion, showing a child how to develop a healthy relationship or be a kind person."
