Hello! I am Alexis Legg, and I am the proud owner of Children's Lighthouse of Oak Forest. My husband (John) and children (Christopher and Caroline) lovingly support me to ensure our school will be an extension of your and our home.
I personally bring an extensive background in early-childhood education, including 2+ years working in a preschool while obtaining my degree in Hospitality Management from the Conrad Hilton School at the University of Houston - GO COOGS! After college, I spent 10+ years as an elementary teacher, administrator and instructional coach in private and public schools, where I also wrote Kindergarten curriculum. In 2012, John's career presented an opportunity for us to move to Dubai, UAE. While in Dubai, I obtained a Master of Education degree from the American University in Dubai and spent several summers at Teacher’s College at Columbia University in New York City and Principal's Training Center in London. We also took the opportunity to travel and experience other cultures (and beaches!) whenever we could.
In early 2016, we moved back to the USA and established our home in Oak Forest. I love to exercise, so you may see me running around the neighborhood streets, along White Oak Bayou, or on your Peloton leaderboard. :)
We are excited to combine our passion and experience to provide a school dedicated quality education and a family-focused culture to our home community. John and I live by the motto - “Be proud, but never satisfied.” This is the backbone of how our school will operate – we will work hard to be proud of our exceptional school, but will continuously strive for more because your children deserve it.
My family and friends will emphatically confirm that I am not shy, so please always feel free to share feedback or ask a question. I hope to see you soon!
