Alexandra Dockhorn

My name is Alexandra Dockhorn and I am super excited to be joining the AB Combs community this fall! I was born and raised in Leawood, KS. In 2016, I graduated from Texas Christian University with a degree in Elementary Education and emphasis in English as a Second Language. I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in a supplemental student teaching opportunity at The International School of The Hauge in the Netherlands. While I was there, I received training and certification at the Association Montessori Internationale. Following my undergrad, I began my journey to receive my accelerated Master’s degree in Special Education from Regis University in Denver, CO. I very much enjoyed living in Colorado this past year, but I am excited to start my career in Raleigh. I have a passion for traveling and expanding my perspective through the lens of different cultures. During my free time I enjoy hiking, yoga, and spending time with family.

My name is Reni-Rochelle Geddes. I moved to Raleigh, NC from Myrtle Beach, SC. I attended college at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Literacy.

Katie Miles

My name is Katie Miles. I was born and grew up in Surrey, England. I went to the University of the West of England, Bristol, and graduated with a BA in Primary Education. I then taught Year 5 (4th Grade) for 2 years in a Surrey school, which is just outside London. I had been to the USA many times and also worked as a Camp Counselor in Pennsylvania during Summer 2012. I have always loved the American culture and found everyone to be so friendly and welcoming. I therefore took the opportunity to move and teach in North Carolina, moving in August 2015. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time teaching here and look forward to continuing to share experiences of the UK and Europe as well as learning more about the U.S. culture during my time at Combs.
