Alexandra Whyte

3/4 Teacher

“Each child brings their unique self and family to my class, becoming part of a 
caring, playful mini-community within FCS.”
Alexandra is the proud mother of two FCS graduates. Following a successful career in business and consulting, Alexandra enters her 12th year of teaching at FCS--first kindergarten, and now 3/4. Alexandra encourages students to thoughtfully express themselves and designs lessons around their interests. A competitive Irish dancer, Alexandra helps choreograph performing arts productions at the school. She also enjoys baking and photography. (With her camera and her knack for putting her colleagues at ease, Alexandra has taken most of the faculty portraits shown here on the website.) She appreciates the balance of academics, play, movement, and exploration that deepens each student’s experience at FCS.
