Alicia Vance joins Redwood as the lead teacher for the blended class of first and second graders. Mrs. Vance is a veteran teacher who holds a master’s degree in education and has taught kindergarten, first, and second grade for 18 years. She is committed to helping students reach their potential and become passionate and successful lifelong learners. Her talents lie in differentiating lessons to meet the needs of all students. She relocated to the Lexington area 2 years ago with her husband and three children and is excited to join our team of teachers. In Mrs. Vance’s words: “I feel very inspired that there are still parents, community members, and educators who have a passion for teaching children in the way they were meant to learn. I feel that Redwood meets a need that the current education system does not meet. I admire the project learning model combined with the high expectations of educating the whole child that Redwood values.” We are also excited to welcome Mrs. Vance’s son, Hayden, who will be going into third grade, to our blended class of second, third and fourth graders!
