Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Alexa Knight
Hi! My name is Alexa Knight, and I am currently teaching 8th grade math and Math One. This is my first year at Meadow, and I am so excited to be a part of the Indian Family! :) This is my eighth year teaching and my sixth 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!
Lunch on 12/17 will be chicken nuggets, chicken pastry, or turkey and cheese sandwich. Corn and baked potato, and pinapple tidbits will also be served. Lunch on 12/18 will be tornados, chicken fajita, or cheese bread sticks. Black beans, broccoli and cheese, and apples will also be served.
Our Kindergarten classes will have their Thanksgiving Program in the gym at 1:00 on Friday, November 16th. We hope to see many parents in attendance. Our students and their teachers work very hard preparing for this event. This is always a cute performance. :)
