Meet 2016 NLC- Twin Cities Fellow Alexander!
Alexander Jacques teaches middle school and high school in the Columbia Heights Public School district, where he ha...s worked for three years. In his first year, Alex was appointed to the position of school equity leader. He quickly built a large team of progressive teachers. This equity team works to end racial disparities in their school, while ensuring equitable outcomes for all students. In his role as equity leader, Alex facilitates professional development and racial justice training for teachers and staff throughout the school year and each summer.
In 2015, Alex was granted a graduate certificate in culturally responsive teaching. Through this course of study, he was connected with other Twin Cities educational professionals who are committed to progressive education reform. Hungering to play a more active role in policy and advocacy, Alex began volunteer work with Educators 4 Excellence in the spring of 2015. At this non-profit, which works to uplift teachers to play an active role in policy making, Alex is currently collaborating with other teacher leaders to develop and produce an action guide, which will outline recommendations for the elimination of racial disparities in discipline.
In addition to his professional work and volunteerism in the Twin Cities, Alex remains connected to his Alma Mater, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Alumni Association. As a member of this board, Alex works closely with university administration to promote the general welfare of UW-Eau Claire and its graduates. Alex serves on the student recruitment committee, which, among other objectives, works toward achieving a more racially diverse student body
Apart from his work as a public school teacher, Alex is an active choral musician, pianist, and conductor. He is the director of music at Grace-Trinity Community Church in Minneapolis. Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Alex moved to the Twin Cities with his partner, Casey, in 2013. Together, they enjoy intercultural experiences in Minneapolis, travel often, eat well, and laugh loudly with good friends and family.
This campaign is to raise money for an all night party for the Columbia Heights seniors.https://www.schwans-cares.com/…/24409-columbia-heights-clas…

The Columbia Heights High School Choral Program is in need of support.
In the last few years, the creative, brilliant students of Columbia Heights have joined the choir program at a record rate. Having tripled in size in just over two years, these magnificent musicians need additional funding in order to continue their academic, musical, and emotional growth.
To continue the progress these students have made over the last few years, they need to bolster the school district's ...support with purchases of:
- New concert attire
- Classroom equipment including choral risers, seating, folder racks, and wardrobe storage
- Expanded musical library
- Piano and sound equipment maintenance
Your generous donation will be used to purchase these items and in other meaningful ways.
