Alex Gould

English B.A., Davidson College

Born in Durham, North Carolina to educator parents, Alex Gould has long known he wanted to teach. He earned a B.A. in English from Davidson College, then taught English and served as Dorm Head at a boarding school in Maryland. In June 2020, he and his wife Katy moved to Salt Lake City, where he joined Waterford the following school year. This year, he’s teaching Class VI Humanities, Class X English (British Literature), and a Class XII seminar on Dystopian Literature.

Having grown up on the East Coast, Alex is still freshly in love with the Utah mountains, and though he’s “outdoorsy lite” by Utah standards, he enjoys skiing, backpacking, and making REI wishlists. He also enjoys cooking, writing poetry and music, and playing with his poodles, Bonnie and Linus.
