St Pius X
 
Teachers


Mrs. Carol Alexander
Welcome to St. Pius X Preschool.  I have been teaching Preschool with the Toledo Catholic Diocese since August of 1998.  The last 14 years have been at St. Pius.  I started this program in 2004 and brought it to St. Pius in 2006.  I went into Early Childhood Education because I love working with children, especially young children.  I want to make a difference in my students lives and give them a solid educational foundation.  
 
I grew up in Toledo Ohio with 7 brothers and sisters and attended Blessed Sacrament grade school and Central Catholic High School and I went on to college and studied Early Childhood Education.  My husband, Steve and I have been married for 27 years and we have two sons, Corey, who is 29 and Kevin, who is 27.  I feel blessed to have a job that   I love going to everyday!  Thank you for allowing me to be your child's teacher.
