Alex Nosef, Asst. Principal

I am excited to be serving as the assistant principal at Shadow Oaks Elementary School this year. This will be my eleventh year in education. I spent six years as a second-grade teacher, three years as a curriculum/digital learning specialist, and this will be my third year as an assistant principal. I was raised in Collierville Tennessee. I received my bachelor's degree and master's degree in elementary education from the University of Mississippi. I also attended Arkansas State University where I received my specialist degree in educational leadership. I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my family.
