Alexa Phillips

3rd-5th Affective Needs Teacher


I am so excited to be starting my first year at Smith and am determined to make this the best year yet! I taught K-8th grade Special Education at a charter school in Denver for the past 2 years and am so thrilled to call Smith my new home! I graduated from St. Louis University in 2014 and will be graduating with my Masters Degree in Teaching Exceptional Learners from University of Colorado Denver in May! Aside from teaching, I can be found hanging out with my pup, baking delicious treats, running or planning my upcoming wedding. I absolutely love reading inspirational quotes and my favorite is, “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, then it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." - Albert Einstein
