Course Facilitator Spotlight: Alexa Hale

What makes iLEAD Online truly unique and innovative in the world of online education is the ongoing real-time collaboration between you and your facilitator. When you take an iLEAD Online class you are not simply going through a package of materials and delivering canned answers to a computer program!

We are proud of the highly experienced and qualified instructors who will be facilitating for our learners this year. Each one brings their own unique talents and experience to their subject areas. And most importantly, they are present to assist each and every learner making sure all iLEAD Online courses deliver rigorous authentic experiences and deeper learning.

Alexa Hale

I am a middle school facilitator who truly loves what I do. I have always known I wanted to teach because I grew up with a fantastic role model of a teacher — she just so happens to be my mom! I graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in education from Belmont Abbey College, NC, and I am credentialed in both North Carolina and California.

I am in my fifth year as a 6th grade facilitator at SCVi Charter School, my 2nd year as a project-based learning coach for iLEAD, and I am very excited to begin my adventure working with iLEAD Online! My philosophy is to provide an interesting and challenging learning environment where learners will flourish socially, emotionally and academically. Once I began working with iLEAD, I knew I was home for these reasons. I love being a part of a growing resource of schools that are dedicated to providing our learners with the skills they will need to thrive in the ever-evolving work force of the 21st Century. I believe in the philosophy where learners hone their skills as leaders by applying the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens; and discover their learning style as well as apply the knowledge garnered from meaningful projects.

Learning in this manner will prepare them to collaboratively work with their peers in the future and take the risks that innovators must in order to create new solutions, products or understandings. As said by my favorite author, J. K. Rowling, “Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared… We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
