Alexis Stubbe is currently a sixth grade teacher at the Genesee Community Charter School in Rochester, New York. She has embraced the Responsive Classroom approach since entering the classroom in 2005 as a student teacher, when she recognized the impact that proactive teacher language and Morning Meetings have on creating a cohesive classroom culture. Recently, Alexis and her teaching team were recipients of the Better World Project award and a Teaching Tolerance grant to create curriculum around identity, race, and lifting up urban communities through art and activism. She is thrilled to be part of the Responsive Classroom team and looks forward to inspiring educators to bring Responsive Classroom teaching practices into their classrooms. In her spare time, Alexis enjoys yoga, walks with her two dogs, down time with family, and adventures in the Adirondack Mountains.
