Alex Buxbaum's Bio:


I am a North Penn High School graduate ( '05). I graduated from Haverford College in 2009 with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Education. In May of 2011, I earned my Masters Degree in Secondary English at The University of Pennsylvania. For now, I am not enrolled anywhere as a student, but hopefully that will change soon when I decide to go back for my Principal Certification!


Classroom Teacher Aide at Overbrook Elementary and Cook-Wissahickon Elementary (2007)
Squash Coordinator at SquashSmarts Inc. (2008)
Teach For America Alumni (2009)
Teacher of English II and Education at Furness High School (2009-2011)
Teacher of English II and Theater at Parkway Center City High School (2011-Present)


I have two younger brothers, aged 19 and 23. Mike is beginning his Freshman year at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Andy is doing a postgraduate year at The University of Pittsburgh to earn his Masters in Accounting. I enjoy playing tennis and squash, as I have played them since I was a teenager, through high school, and college. Lastly, I am the Director/Producer of Parkway's after school theater program, coordinator of our annual Poetry Slam, and self-proclaimed "After School Specialist." If you are interested in being a part of something after school, please let me know! We'll make it happen!!!
