Allison received a Bachelors of Business Administration from James Madison University and a Masters of Education from Bridgeport University. She will complete her Waldorf teacher training at the Sunbridge Institute in March 2019. She has worked as an elementary school teacher and library teacher at Head O Meadow in Newtown, Mitchell Elementary School in Woodbury, and at Sandy Hook School. Prior to her career in education she worked in various roles in the corporate world for ten years. Allison joined HVWS’s teaching staff in 2016 as the Class of 2024 teacher. Allison discovered HVWS when her eldest child (now in middle school at HVWS) was in pre-school and she attended a Kindermorning. The beauty and reverence she experienced left her in tears, and she never looked back! She jokes that her favorite hobby is lesson planning. Allison also loves to garden, read, mountain bike, run, listen to music, fish with her family, and watch baseball.
