4th Grade Teacher
Allison has been actively involved with working with children from an early age and has always enjoyed learning new things. Her enthusiasm for teaching and sharing her love of learning was fostered by her own educational experiences. Born and raised in Carlsbad, CA, Allison moved up to Santa Barbara, where she graduated from Westmont College with a degree in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Credential. For two years she taught third grade in Santa Barbara before relocating back down to Carlsbad in 2017.
Allison has been teaching at JCS Mountain Oaks since January 2019 and has loved being a part of this amazing community. It is through teaching that she seeks to help students further develop and discover their passions through instilling in them the tools of having a growth mindset in their journey of learning. She believes that imagination, creativity, and curiosity can help fuel the excitement that comes with learning and discovery. Most importantly, Allison loves the enthusiasm that students bring into the classroom and the opportunity to share in teachable moments.
With her enjoyment of singing, theater, and ballet, Allison loves to incorporate music and theater into the classroom atmosphere. When she is not teaching, you will find her swimming, reading a good book, or exploring the outdoors with her friends, family, and their three labradors Sammy, Abby, and Toby.
