Mrs. Mych'Iayla Alexander
I am here to partner with our scholars as they continue their journeys toward the best version of themselves, socially, emotionally and academically. My objective is to serve, and walk alongside, them as they utilize their strengths to achieve their goals.
I worked in the mental and behavioral health field for over 11 years, with the last 4 as a therapist, before switching careers paths. I taught English to Adult Learners for Central Arizona College. I also taught 2nd grade (for 3 years) and 6-12th (for 4.5 years). When the pandemic hit, I wanted to make a different type of lasting impression on our scholars, and their families, so I shifted a little and became a school counselor.
I am an Illinois native by way of Wisconsin, but I LOVE the Arizona desert. I've been here 11 years. My husband and I have 5 children (16, 13, 4, 3 and 6 months), who I absolutely adore. We really enjoy hanging out with family and friends, watching movies, football and basketball, dancing, attending worship services, going to the pool, snacking and family vacations.
It's been an honor to serve those around me and in my community. I look forward to continuing the journey with MUSD!
