My Story

Alexis is a doctoral candidate in Curriculum and Instruction, specializing in Educational Technology at the University of Florida. Additionally, she is the Research Fellow at CSforAll. Alexis spent the last eleven of her sixteen years in education, supporting teachers and students in integrating Computer Science in elementary education. She serves as a graduate research assistant in the Creative Technology Research Lab at the University of Florida and shares a unique perspective as a practitioner-researcher. Alexis’s passion for high-quality teacher professional development led her to organize the South Florida Scratch Educator Meetup. Through the support of the Scratch Foundation, Alexis recently launched Creating Pathways, a virtual Scratch Educator Meetup centered on equity, inclusion, and accessibility through the lens of Scratch. Alexis’s research interests include inclusive and equitable pedagogies as a means to reduce barriers to the inclusion of students with disabilities in K-12 CS education.
