Alexandra Whyte

Kindergarten Teacher

"How important it is for us to listen to our students in all kinds of ways in order to be able to learn about them deeply."
Following a successful career in business and consulting, Alexandra enters her 15th year at FCS. In her tenure, she has taught kindergarten, 3/4, and served as Interim Lower School Head. In addition to encouraging students to thoughtfully express themselves, Alexandra has led teacher workshops on "Listening to Learn"--understanding and encouraging non-verbal expression from students--and "Faith and Play," a Montessori-inspired approach integrating Quaker values and story-telling. A competitive Irish dancer, Alexandra helps choreograph performing arts productions at FCS. She also enjoys baking and photography. Alexandra is the proud mother of two FCS graduates.
