After five years as a per diem consulting teacher, Alex Supple joined CRS full-time as an educational consultant and coach. In the classroom and as an outdoor and community educator, Alex emphasized the importance of social constructivist and experiential learning. The Responsive Classroom approach was vital to creating safe and predictable learning environments. After graduating from Occidental College with a degree in philosophy, Alex worked in a range of program settings from independent schools to technology and nature camps. He obtained a master’s degree in education from Lesley University and began work as a middle school math and science teacher in Massachusetts. When he is not sharing the Responsive Classroom approach with teachers, Alex enjoys open-water swimming, going to the movies, and exploring new restaurants with family and friends.
