The right book can speak to any kid about who they are, where they are, and the feelings they really have. -Alix Maffin-Pirie Click To Tweet
Alix Maffin-Pirie is an enthusiastic English Language Arts teacher in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. She is a proud firefighter’s wife, rescue-dog mama, lover of the outdoors, board games, corny jokes, and a life long learner. Alix knew from a young age she wanted to be a teacher. Perhaps playing “classroom” in her basement was the first clue she’d found her calling!
Alix attended the University of Guelph (English Literature and History) and Wilfrid Laurier University (Bachelor of Education). Throughout her educational journey, Alix worked with and attended seminars regarding students with exceptionalities as she was (and still is) a student with an exceptionality herself.
Alix understands that each learner is following their own path and that not every student learns the same way. Alix loves to read, travel, and learn. She strives to make school a place where creativity and inquiry are welcome and can really shine through.
