Highlands Elementary School
5th & 6th Grade - Mathematics/Science

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! I want to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! My name is Alex Isaacs and I am the 5th and 6th grade mathematics and science teacher at Highlands Elementary School. For the past three years, I was a 5th grade teacher in the Long Branch and Freehold Township school districts. In 2007, I received my Bachelor's Degree in accounting from Monmouth University. After two years in New York City, I realized I wanted to do something I was more passionate about. I then returned to Monmouth University in order to earn my Master's of Arts Degree in Education so that I could become a full-time teacher. More recently, I gained my Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing in Middle School Mathematics.

I am so excited to be a part of the Highlands Elementary School staff, and cannot wait to meet my new students and the parents/caregivers. Two major themes I will be promoting this year are "Strive for Five" and "Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it!" These relate to maintaining high standards for attendance, punctuality, goal-setting and achievement. It is my hope that the students embrace these ideas on a daily basis as they push themselves to be at their best.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, running on the boardwalk, golfing and being with my friends and loved ones. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with all of my 5th and 6th grade students, and their families.
