Allison was born and raised in New Jersey. She attended Eastern Christian School from pre-school to 12th Grade and graduated in 2009. Her interests include spending time with family and friends, going to the beach, traveling, baking, and being outdoors with her dog Zinnia.
She attended Gordon College and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Elementary and Psychology. After graduating, she lived in Massachusetts and worked as a curriculum coordinator for an after school program and a Pre-K teacher. She then moved to Arizona where she lived and taught for 8 years in Title 1 public schools. She moved back to New Jersey to be closer to family and to join the EC family as a 1st Grade teacher.
She is so excited to return to the EC community as a teacher. She loves teaching reading and science and is looking forward to being able to integrate her faith into teaching as well as in all parts of the day with her students. It is her prayer that her students leave first grade year with a love of learning as well. She looks forward to creating a class family each year while also celebrating and nurturing each student as a child of God. It is so meaningful to her that her class will start the year together already being able to share a love of God.
