Felix credits the military service with helping shape her approach to teaching and the positive impact she is making on her students’ lives. She said the Army taught her discipline, routine, leadership, and problem-solving skills that prove invaluable in her role at High Road’s new in-district classroom. Her knack for setting standards and procedures have been invaluable in ensuring the success of her students.
“Ultimately all my experiences have led me to this current moment. I am able to incorporate my life skills and experiences,” said Felix. “My leadership experience in the military has allowed me to become a confident leader here at High Road.”
Felix is currently completing her second masters in special education K-12 and will be graduating this December.
“The leaders at High Road have always been so supportive and encouraged me to go back to school for special education so I could continue growing in the company.”
As she continues making a positive impact on her students’ lives, Felix’s story serves as an inspiration to anyone seeking a meaningful career transition. And, she didn’t forget her roots —her artwork can be seen adorning the hallways at High Road School at Southbridge.
