Mrs. Alex Cron

Hello Wonderful Parents and Students!

I would like to welcome you and your child to our fifth grade class! My name is Alexandra (Alex) Cron and this is my fourth year teaching 5th grade and my first here at Meridian Elementary. I am so excited to get to know all of you over the next year!

My goal this year is to build a classroom community that is based on trust, respect and responsibility. Together, we can create a place where it is safe to learn, explore and engage in a variety of activities and challenges. Based on this, my hope is to create and instill the love of learning in all students and help them become college and career ready. 

I graduated from the University of Idaho in 2014 (Go Vandals!) with my BA in Elementary Education and then went on to get my Masters in Education (International) from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom where I graduated in 2015. I have been teaching for 6 years now and love every moment of it. 

In my free time, I love spending time with my husband, Michael, and my son, Benjamin, and daughter Melanie (and of course our dogs Cheese and Chili). My hobbies include travelling, hiking, cooking and reading.
