Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Alexandra Wooden
I began my teaching career at Boulder Hill Elementary School in 2005 and taught third grade for 13 years. Beginning 2018, I took on a new position as the Literacy Specialist at Boulder Hill, and then in August of 2020 I transitioned into the position of instructional coach. Throughout my tenure, I have served as a team and building leader, participated on the district’s math committee, and led a variety of staff development meetings. I am continually seeking out ways in which I can enrich the learning experiences of each and every young mind that walks into our building in person or virtually. My philosophy is to develop lifelong learners by empowering each student and developing their independence, responsibility and character. I graduated from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, in 2005 with a degree in elementary education. I then went on to receive a master’s degree in reading from Olivet Nazarene University, in Bourbonnais, Ill., in 2010, and finally in 2012 I completed my master’s in mathematics at National Louis University, Chicago.
