About Me

My name is Alexis Wilson and I am currently seeking my multiple subject teaching credential. I have my BA degree in Child and Adolescent Development from Point Loma Nazarene University. My passion in life is working with and helping children, and I know through my career as a teacher that I can accomplish that. I have always been a school person, and I love to learn. I want to translate that value on to the next generation, so that school becomes an exciting place to be rather than a burden. My past experiences and internships include an assistant in a parent education preschool classroom, an intern in a social-emotional charter school, creating an undergraduate research project involving parent education, and many classes where I have had field experience with children of all ages (infants, preschoolers, special education, school aged, and adolescents). I could not be more excited to continue my education in my current credential program. I used to play school as a little girl, and now that childhood dream is becoming a reality for me.

I have grown up in Ventura, and I am back after college to continue my education and career locally. In my spare time, I love reading, going to the beach, babysitting my nieces and nephews, going to Disneyland, going on new adventures with friends, hiking, getting coffee, and more. I am also currently planning a wedding, and that is an exciting time in my future (next May I will become Mrs.Gray)!

One of my favorite places, Hume LakeMy little niece, EllaGraduation!
