Alexis grew up across the street from Atlantis Academy Palm Beaches and attended the program for most of her school career. She said the school became a second home for her and she loved every minute of her time as a student.
During her junior and senior years, she participated in our school’s mentorship program, practicing reading with a first-grade student with autism. This experience sparked a passion in Alexis and led her to pursue a career in education. While a student at Atlantis Academy, Alexis also participated in our performing arts programs, singing during special programs and leading the dance group. She is now a professional performer with the Pembroke Pines Theatre of the Performing Arts and a local murder mystery dinner program.
After graduating from Atlantis, Alexis graduated Summa Cum Laude from Palm Beach State College with an associate’s degree and from Florida Atlantic University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She now works as a substitute teacher in the Palm Beach County school system and tutors students.
Alexis credits her experiences at Atlantis for preparing her for her future in education and performing. She said, “Atlantis Academy taught me I can be whatever I want to be if I work hard to succeed.”
