Mrs. Carrie Alexander was a former fourth-grade elementary teacher. She graduated from Waldron High School. She attended several community colleges to get her degree while she was in high school and after she graduated. Her degree is actually through Arkansas Tech. A “Gifted and Talented” teacher that Mrs. Alexander had throughout elementary and middle school was the person to inspire her to become a teacher. She loved teaching and always challenged Mrs. Alexander to be creative and pushed her to go above and beyond. Mrs. Alexander knew from early on that she wanted to help inspire students in the same way.  

Mrs. Alexander taught elementary for twenty years. This is her first year to teach high school. When asked how she felt about moving across the street from the elementary to the high school, she said, “I felt nervous but also very excited when I walked across the street to the high school. I love and miss my students and co-workers at the elementary school, but I needed a change of pace and this has so far been a very good change.” Her students have warmly welcomed her.
