Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Lead Mine students and families! I’m Alexandra Herskowitz Fert, the Occupational Therapist serving LMES this year. I was born in NY and grew up mostly in the Hudson Valley. I received my Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy from D’Youville College in 2013. After graduation I lived and worked in Buffalo public schools before moving to Raleigh. I worked as a contractor for one school year in Johnston County before finding a position in early intervention. I served infants and toddlers in Wake and Durham counties for 2 1/2 years before joining the Wake County Public School team. I have enjoyed being a part of the WCPSS family and I am so pleased to be able to work with the wonderful teachers, students, and families at Lead Mine Elementary!
