All About Me...

I am Allison and this will be my fifth year teaching. So far, I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grade and I am finding that there is something special about every grade. However, I also think fourth may just be my favorite. This year I have the privilege of blocking with an amazing team. I will teach reading and I am looking forward to this challenge and honor. My goal this summer is to create ready-to-go reading interventions for our entire fourth grade team. It's a great idea, but a HUGE undertaking.

I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2009 with my bachelors degree. In 2013, I received my master's degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University. However, I will always bleed black and gold...GO APP!!!

I married my best friend, Parker, in 2011. We were high school sweethearts and have been together ever since. He is in school right now getting his master's degree in Occupational Therapy so he spends most of his time studying. This works great for my teaching addiction because he never complains about me working on stuff.


We adopted my pride and joy, Binx in 2011 as well. He is my furbaby and is pretty spoiled, I will admit. But just look at could you NOT spoil him???

In my spare time, I enjoy running and watching silly reality television and of course GLEE!! Right now my favorite "reality" tv show is Big Brother and Pretty Wicked Moms (crazy I know!!!).

If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask! :)

  1. Hey Alison! I think we should be blogger friends :) I am totally new to blogging too! I found your blog through the NC blogger linky and discovered that (like all great teachers) we both went to ASU! We must have just missed each other, I graduated in 2008!
    Your blog looks great! Keep up the good work!
