My name is Alexis Filippo and this is my fourth year in education! I recently moved to Kansas City to join an education leadership program called, the Green Fellows. Before moving to KC, I lived in the Mississippi Delta for three years as a 3rd/4th grade teacher and reading interventionist. I graduated from The University of Oklahoma in 2015. While at OU, I had the opportunity to travel to Ghana, three times. Twice with a University of Oklahoma student medical volunteer team, and once, as a summer global health intern for a non-profit. I love to spend time with my family and friends, cook, read, travel, and cheer on my favorite sports teams, the OKC Thunder and Oklahoma Sooners. I am looking forward to an exciting first year at KCIA!!
