All About Alex
Or Mx. B(ee) as my students call me.
Funny, now that it’s time for me to write this out (again) I’m at a loss for words but here goes:
Born in September 1989, I have lived the bulk of my life here in Maryland. I completed both my undergrad (BA in Art Education 2012) and graduate (MEd in Art Education 2019) studies at Towson University and am Maryland State Certified for grades PreK-12. I currently teach Foundations of Art and all Photography classes at a high school located in central Maryland.
I’m a practicing artist with a focus on illustration and comics. I enjoy also enjoy musical theater, karaoke, watching way too much Netflix/Hulu/movies/etc, and hanging with friends. I only play Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (poorly) and am a barbarian dwarf in my current D&D campaign. I listen to the same music I jammed to in high school, spend too much time in front of a screen, and am a big beginner of things but not so great on the finishing part.
All About Ten Paper Crowns
I always have had grand schemes up my sleeve and very little follow-through. Case in point- this blog had a short-lived life from late 2016 – 2018 where I only updated twice and then let it fall into obscurity because I really never gathered any momentum. That and to be completely honest, work and grad school quickly got the better of me and the blog took a back seat to life.
Now it’s 2020, I’m done grad school, and it’s time to actually put up instead of just shutting up. I’ve got a couple of big goals this year (my 30th on this earth) including better health habits, focusing on my art, writing and illustrating a comic, and being more productive with life outside of work. That’s where this blog comes in- it acts as a sort of accountability while allowing me to engage in one of my old school passions. (Yes, I was a Livejournal/Xanga kid and I also used to run a now-defunct website called Just Depends back in the day.) By investing in this little piece of web pie, I’m hopefully going to stay more on top of my goals while also getting to share my experiences teaching, creating, and living with the world.

So, welcome- hope this rambling about page made some modicum of sense and maybe piqued your interest in the going-ons of this blog. Please feel free to peruse the site or ask questions! Enjoy!
