She has been actively involved in other roles outside of her direct teaching responsibilities and was elected the 2021 Teacher of the Year for her school. For the past two years Lexie has coordinated a talent show that she conceptualized for Little Carver. The talent show showcased students from Pre-K to fifth grade and gave them an opportunity to showcase talents beyond academics. She realizes that all students are gifted with talents and in addition to Going for the Gold in the classroom educators must create platforms for students to express themselves creatively.
