Glenview Welcomes 4 NEW Teachers
We are starting off the new school year 2014-15 with four new teachers. When you see them roaming the halls, show them our Glenview Pride give them a warm welcome!
Mr. Bart Alexander
Bart Alexander has taught Kindergarten and First grade at Garfield Elementary in Oakland for 12 years.
This year he is joining his daughter (First grade)
and son (Third grade) at Glenview. He is curious about the perspective of being a parent and teacher. He has a BA in Political Science and a BA in Spanish from the University of Oregon, and holds an MA in Elementary Education (2002) from Developmental Teacher Education at the University of California, Berkeley.
Bart is a great supporter of the Common Core Standards and looks forward to helping Glenview through this transition.
When not at school you may see him at Dimond Park hiking up Sausal Creek with his kids and wife, Jessie or playing tennis on a Sunday morning with other Oakland residents.
