Mrs. Alexa Knight

Hi! My name is Alexa Knight, and I am currently teaching 8th grade math and Math One. This is my third year at Meadow, and I am so excited to be a part of the Indian Family! :) This is my tenth year teaching and my eighth year in 8th grade.  I also have my Middle School Science license, and I am AIG certified.  I was born and raised in Benson, NC and I could not imagine myself living anywhere else.  I graduated Summa Cum Laude from North Carolina State University in 2010.  I am a true wolfpack fan who thoroughly enjoys attending games.  You can also find me cheering on the Bears during football season and the Braves during baseball season!  

I was married on April 6th, 2013 to my best friend & also NCSU alumni, Justin Knight who works in engineering.  We have two amazing daughters, Annie and Claire.  In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, fishing, hanging out with friends and family, and playing volleyball.  Through all my life experiences, I realize more and more each day that I am precisely where I belong.  I consider myself a math minded person because I spend nearly every waking moment thinking about math and relating it to real world.  Most importantly, however, I love to share my passion about math and learning with my students.  My students mean the world to me, and they are the true reason that I am who I am today!
