Alex Page '06
Alex Page '06 will be teaching English in South Korea.

Alex Page is excited to have the opportunity to spend a year teaching children in South Korea. Page, a double major in English and World Literature, is interested in ceramics and mixed media as well as Environmental Studies. Currently, he teaches outdoor education to fifth- and sixth- graders as part of the LEEP (Leadership in Environmental Education Partnership) program.

Page has spent his summers as a camp counselor on an organic farm where he served as the Assistant Camp Director for about 100 children ranging in age from 8 to 16.

“Pitzer was a great environment for me. I could not have asked for anything else from the College,” said Page. He credits Al Wachtel, Jill Benton, David Furman, Nigel Boyle and Carol Brandt as particularly inspirational and supportive faculty while at Pitzer.

His campus activities include serving as the president of the Social Activities Committee, co-coordinating the Bob Marley Festival, and participating in the Pitzer Outdoor Adventure group. He participated in the Pitzer in Italy program during his junior year at Pitzer. His sister Juliete graduated from Pitzer College in 1996.

Page is a bass guitarist and has played in Erica and the Dream Fight for the past four years.
