Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Alyssa Alberts, and I am a special education teacher at Crossroads Montessori + Science working with students in 2nd-5th grade! This is my first year teaching at Crossroads, and I am new to my teaching career. However, I have worked with children and families in a variety of settings in Minneapolis and St. Paul for many years now!
I received my degree and teaching preparation from the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities in Special Education. I also studied Spanish, and continue to strengthen my Spanish skills to better communicate with Spanish-speaking students and families in my community. I am passionate about providing access and support to all students to encourage their growth as learners and community members. I prioritize making my classroom feel like a community where all students feel safe, supported, and represented. Anti-racism and anti-ableism are at the heart of my teaching philosophy, and partnering with families is an essential part of my practice.
