Mr. Alex Luther
Hi! My name is Alex Luther and I am a 5th grade teacher here at Millbrook Elementary. I completed my student teaching at Millbrook in the fall of 2018, taught here in the spring of 2019, and am excited to start my first full year of teaching 5th grade!
I took a bit of a winding road to get to my teaching career. I often tell people that I did not know what I wanted to be when I grew up until I was in my 40's! I graduated from Belmont Abbey College with a BA in Sports Management ('98) and worked as an insurance adjuster from 1998-2009. For the next 10 years I was a stay-at-home dad to three wonderful children. I began volunteering in schools and found my true passion. I graduated from Western Governor's University with a Master of Arts in Teaching: Elementary Education in 2018.
I believe in a positive and safe classroom environment in which every child is given the opportunity to succeed. I also believe that parent involvement is crucial and to that end, I am in constant contact with my parents via the Class Dojo app, which is the best way to contact me day or night.
Welcome to the 5th grade!
