My name is Alex and I started working at Hilltop in January as a full-time support educator. I have had the opportunity to work in classrooms of every age group and love aspects of each one. I love working with toddler kids because they challenge me to grow as an educator as much as I challenge them. I love working together with kids to create learning experiences that are meaningful and fun. I bring enthusiasm for early learning that is driven by child interests, and an open mind to support their creative ideas. I am currently attending the University of Washington to attain a bachelor’s degree in Early Care & Education, and love applying what I’m learning in school to my job!
