Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Alex Dalton and I am a 6th grade Math and Science teacher at Aspen Middle School. While I was born in Louisiana, I grew up in Colorado and have retained my Cajun roots, most notably by saying "y'all". Always feeling the push and pull between LA and CO, I returned to the south for an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Louisiana State University in 2015 and then obtained a graduate degree in Microbiology from Colorado State University in 2019. Though my career began in medicine, I have always been enamored with education and children. So when I learned there was a need for teachers in the Aspen District in October 2020, I decided on a career change and joined my partner who has been teaching in the district since 2018. My focus in education is to build relationships with students and encourage them to be kind and curious about learning. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family who lives outside Denver, baking, reading, and spending time outside playing soccer, tennis, and volleyball.
