When Alexis Stubbe first walked into Community Circle at the Genesee Community Charter School in February 2005 she knew immediately that she was somewhere extraordinary. Prior to being a sixth grade teacher, Alexis worked as a substitute teacher at GCCS for nearly nine years after student teaching in 2006. Alexis earned her bachelor’s degree in Art History from Hood College in Frederick, Maryland and a she received her master’s degree in Elementary Education from Nazareth College. She has lived and worked in Maryland and Connecticut, but has rediscovered her native Rochester where she lives an urban life with her husband, daughter, German shepherd, gray tiger cat, and two very charming hermit crabs.
When Alexis is not teaching, she can be found training for a long-distance race, whipping up a new vegan dish, riding her bike around the city, enjoying time with family and neighbors, and taking in the sights and sounds of Rochester. Alexis’ favorite place to visit outside of Rochester’s city limits is the Adirondack Park where her family has a 118-year-old, off-the-grid cabin on White Lake.
About the Genesee Community Charter School, Alexis states: “I am grateful to be a part of a community where the arts live and breathe in the curriculum and in the daily practices of teachers and students. Additionally, I love that the faculty and staff at GCCS live by the character traits and EL Design Principles, value the reflective process, and look for every opportunity to be a learner.”
