Hey there! I'm Alex, or Mr. Herzing, depending on who's reading this. I'm a 7th and 8th grade teacher at Woods Charter School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I teach English Language Arts and I'm also fortunate enough to be an 8th grade advisor.
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Middle Grades Education. While in college, I was President of the UNC branch of the Collegiate Middle Level Organization from 2011-2012, and President of Blank Canvas Dance Company from 2012-2013. I also was very involved with musical theatre in college, and did choreography for 7 productions with various companies.
My hope as a beginning educator is to learn as I teach. There is always something new to discover about how to best teach adolescents, and I continue to work towards becoming a better teacher.
