My name is Alexis Jacoby, and I have been teaching at McKinley since 2017. Previously, I taught first-grade and fourth-grade Advanced Academics (AAP) in Fairfax County. I graduated from Penn State University with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I completed my M.A.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction at George Mason University. I will earn my Ed.D. in Reading from Walden University in 2019. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy trying new restaurants, searching for new learning opportunities, reading any book I can get my hands on, and traveling to new places.
