Welcome to Mrs. Alexander's page!Hello from the Grant School office! I started working at Grant in August 2014 as a media instructional aide in the library and computer lab. Now, I work in the office, which means I get to support our students, their parents, our teachers, and our principal with all the things that go into growing Grant All Stars. I am honored to be with your children each day, and love watching their social and educational growth.My story is probably like a lot of Columbians: I didn't grow up here, but once I graduated from college, I never left! I grew up on a hog farm in Shelbina, Missouri and have a bachelor's degree in Agriculture from Mizzou. Before coming to Grant, I was the Public Relations Director for Regional Economic Development, Inc. for eight years and the Public Information Officer for the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services for six years.I love to read, play the piano, take walks, ride bikes, and travel with my husband and our two kids. My husband is a "local boy" who comes from a long line of Columbia Public Schools graduates. In fact, his grandpa was in the very first class at Grant, way back in 1911!Next time you're at Grant, drop in the office and say hi!
