Hello, 5th Grade Students and Families!
My name is Alex Scaminaci and I am the 5th Grade Math and Science teacher at Village Meadows. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and completed both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Illinois. My husband and I moved to Phoenix last summer and are proud to call Arizona our home!
This will be my seventh year of teaching elementary school and my second year teaching 5th Grade at Village Meadows. Before joining the Village Meadows community, I taught for 5 years in Illinois. I've taught 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 5th Grade and I'm excited to be teaching 5th Grade again this year. My absolute favorite subjects are math and science and I’m looking forward to all the exploring and problem solving we are going to experience this year!
When I’m not at school, I love to spend time with my family, cook, garden, hike, ride my bike, and read A LOT of books!
I recognize that the first and lifelong teachers of my students are their parents. I value collaboration with both my students and their families to ensure a successful year full of social, emotional, and academic growth!
