Dear Room 8 Families,

My name is Alexandra Bruce, and I am SO pleased to be your child's 2nd grade teacher!  This is my third year teaching at Briarcrest Elementary. I feel so lucky to be part of such a positive and collaborative group of teachers. As a primary teacher, my main goal is to create an environment where my students can grow to love learning.  I intend to do this by establishing a cohesive, supportive classroom community that inspires students to respect and take care of each other.  In this environment, children will feel empowered to make their own decisions, create their own learning opportunities, and learn to govern themselves. When children feel a sense of ownership over their learning and their community, they are more likely to enjoy the growth process in both areas.

If you should ever have any questions, please feel free to email at or call me at 206-393-1128 (for during school hours you will be transferred to the office).  If I do not have an answer for you right away I will find one and get back to you as soon as I can.  I look forward to working with you during this school year!


Mrs. Bruce
