Aixle has been a champion for educational equity since her days teaching in the public and private sectors, and being confronted with the reality of disparities in resources, support, and parent engagement at each school. After teaching, she became inspired to tackle educational inequity issues through systems change at the local level. Currently, Aixle (pronounced ACE-EL) serves as the Special Assistant to the Chief Academic Officer of the L.A. Unified School District. She previously worked in two Board of Education offices, in various roles, including as Chief of Staff. She proudly led the Board District 5 team to ensure the successful implementation of the board office’s vision through grassroots policymaking, parent organizing, and coalition building.
Aixle holds a Bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego and Master’s degrees from Pace University in New York City and the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. She proudly received her Doctorate in Educational Leadership for Social Justice at Loyola Marymount University. Her published dissertation was a cross-site case study that examined the impact that two L.A. Unified “community schools” had on students and schools through the presence of shared decision-making, holistic and integrated services, and intentional community partnerships. Aixle enjoys meditating, exercising, traveling, journaling, and sharing meals with loved ones.
