My name is Alessandra, and I teach 8th grade at Sylvandale Middle School. I have been with the district since 2015, starting as a substitute teacher. I am now working in my second year as one of the 8th grade Physical Education teachers. I earned my degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in teaching. During my free time I play soccer, scuba dive, travel, work out at the gym, and just relax at the beach. One of my favorite quotes: "The reward is never so great without the struggle."
