Kris Alexander, Principal
About Ms. Alexander
I am truly honored and grateful to continue to serve the special school community of Rock View. I am excited to continue our collaborative work to create a positive learning environment that promotes the highest levels of teaching and learning. I am confident that our community will work together to preserve and build upon what has been most successful at Rock View and move it into the future. I am committed to helping our staff and students reach their highest potential.
I am a “West Coast” girl at heart; I was raised in the Seattle area. I am a huge Seattle Seahawks fan! I moved from the Pacific Northwest to attend college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and began my educational journey into psychology and education while at CU. After having two children and moving to Maryland, I earned a Master’s degree and a Certificate of Advanced Study in School Psychology from Towson University. After serving as a school psychologist in MCPS, I pursued a graduate certificate in Administration and Supervision from Towson University. Before becoming the proud principal of Rock View, I served the school communities of Rosemary Hills and Wood Acres Elementary Schools as an Assistant Principal, and Rock View’s as a Principal Intern and Acting Principal.
My husband and I live in Silver Spring with our two daughters, Sydney and Avery.
I can be reached at 301-929-2002 or via email at Kristine_A_Alexander@mcpsmd.org. I look forward to working together to ensure that Rock View is a “Great Place to Learn.”
