2017-18 Milken Educators

Photo 6 of 44 California Alexis King


On October 10, 2017, English teacher ALEXIS KING won the first Milken Educator Award of the 2017-18 season. Alexis joined the Milken Award family at Ruben S. Ayala High School in Chino Hills in front of 2,700+ cheering students, colleagues and visitors. Alexis teaches AP, general education, Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and special education students, all of whom flock to her classes because they know she will help them succeed. Surprised and trembling, Alexis shared her Award with the entire school: "I want to thank all my students, past and present, for this amazing career."
