Alejandra Knott Bio

About Me: I am excited to begin my new role as the Instructional Coach for Malvern Elementary! This is my 17th year in education. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Education with a major in Special Education and a minor in Bilingual Education. Also, throughout the years I obtained my Gifted and Talented Certifications. I have had the opportunity to work at Finch, Slaughter, and Caldwell Elementary while being part of the MISD family. My husband and I have two very interesting teenagers, Isabella and Jacob. When I am not at school, I enjoy working, reading, traveling, and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to a great year partnering with our teachers and learning together to provide our students with the opportunity to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and contributing members of our society. Playing a part in the student’s growth and success is extremely rewarding and inspiring for me. This is my main motivation to give everything I have to support them and collaborate with you to help them succeed. I can’t wait to start this journey with you!

Estoy muy orgullosa de ser parte del equipo de Malvern. Este es mi 17vo° año en educación. Me gradué de la Universidad de Texas en El Paso con una Licenciatura en Educación, con la especialidad en Educación Especial y Educación Bilingüe. He tenido la oportunidad de trabajar en las escuelas primarias de Finch, Slaughter y Caldwell durante mi tiempo en Mckinney. Mi esposo y yo tenemos 2 adolescentes, Isabella y Jacob. Cuando no estoy en la escuela, me gusta trabajar, leer, viajar y pasar tiempo con mi familia. Una de mis metas es proporcionar la oportunidad a nuestros estudiantes de tener éxito tanto académico como personal. Ser parte de la educación de nuestros estudiantes es muy gratificante y estimulante para mi. Esta es mi principal motivación para ayudar y colaborar con otros maestros lo más posible para asegurar su éxito en su carrera escolar.
