Allison grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia; married her high school sweetheart; and, after living in several states, moved with her husband and their three children to Colorado in 2007. For nearly two decades, she has taught preschoolers while raising her own family, serving as a lead teacher, teacher assistant and assistant program director. Allison has a bachelor's degree in Classical Studies and minor in Elementary Education from Gettysburg College. Her favorite pastimes are spending time with her family, hiking, watching her children playing sports and traveling to new places.
Allison's favorite Bible verse: "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
