Alex is a special educator with over a decade building history learning experiences with archival primary sources. His career in education began as a NYC Teaching Fellow for adolescent special education. While he has taught in a variety of classroom settings, the bulk of his experience is working in museums, libraries, and archives. Previously, he was Manager of Teaching & Learning at Brooklyn Historical Society (now the Center for Brooklyn History at Brooklyn Public Library), where he was the project lead for the Muslims in Brooklyn curriculum. While at BHS, Alex worked on a variety of projects and partnerships related to exhibitions, archives, and library education programs for all ages. Previously, Alex served on the board of the NYC Museum Educators Roundtable (NYCMER) and the Museum, Arts, and Culture Access Consortium (MAC). He began his museum career at the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum, and still has lots of cool and obscure facts he remembers from working at the NY Transit Museum and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92. Alex is a life-long New Yorker and proud graduate of NYC public schools in Staten Island, NY, where he currently resides with his wife and kids. In his free time, he likes to play Dungeons & Dragons, garden, cook, and take care of the kids.
