    About the Teacher:

    "I prioritize building strong relationships with my students and holding them to the highest of expectations. I believe with a strong classroom community, anything is possible. Coding is exploding across the country, and I believe Collegiate is leading the way with our innovative and rigorous computer science offerings.
     
    Our students are eager and enthusiastic. Home to the "Quack Lab," our state-of-the-art computer science classroom has allowed our students to excel. One of my favorite memories was watching our students win $10,000 in the World Wide Technology Hack-a-thon, as they worked over the course of several weeks to develop a remarkable application.
     
    Choosing to teach at Collegiate has been the best decision I could have ever made."
     
    Biography: 
    Mr. Alex Schenk has been teaching at the Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience since 2015. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics & Secondary Education from Saint Louis University. In May 2020, he completed a Master of Arts in Educational Technology from Lindenwood University.
     
    He is a firm believer in service-learning opportunities, and look for ways to develop student leaders and expand our learning outside of our school. Our coding students have participated at GlobalHack, our Student Council students have collaborated with other schools through workshops within the Missouri Association of Student Councils, and groups of our math students have attended district competitions and engineering days at Saint Louis University.
     
    When Mr. Schenk is not at Collegiate you can find him training for triathlons and running events and traveling the world.
     
    He expresses that it is truly refreshing to teach in such an innovative and diverse setting. Serving as a teacher at the Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience is a dream. He looks forward to our growing programs and a bright future. Go Owls!
