Alexis Close, M.Ed.
Language Special Instructor
“Being able to work with and observe a child in both the school and home settings gives me an opportunity to become familiar with all of the child’s strengths. Working with children of such a young age, i am able to initiate the life-long learning process, alongside of their parents.”
Alexis joined the CARE staff in 2012, believing that many of her personal and professional goals are closely aligned with what CARE for Children stand for and believes in. She received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford in 2008, and her Masters Degree in Early Education from Edinboro University in 2011. In 2013 Alexis earned the Language Coach credential (birth to five) from the State of Pennsylvania.
Alexis is currently a teacher in for our Port Allegany Playgroup and the Developmental Playgroups in Bradford. She is also working with families of children ages birth to three through the Early Intervention program as a teacher.
Alexis is looking forward to making a lasting impression on the lives of many community members through her work at CARE, and is excited to be part of an organization that offers so many opportunities to children of all abilities.
She resides in Bradford with her husband John, son and two daughters.
