Welcome to Second Grade!

Mrs. Allison's Legendary Lions

Mrs. Allison

I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! As you know, I am moving from third grade to second grade. While I'll miss my buddy Miss Harlee and all the fun things we did in third, I am over- the -moon excited about teaching second grade! I was told that second grade teachers pick an animal theme so.... I directed Lion KIng Jr here at JES last year, I have been inspired to keep that Lion theme going this year. We will be the Legendary Lions!

This is my fourteenth year teaching and my eighth class at JES. Fun fact: I was also once a parent here! I graduated from The University of Texas, El Paso, and hold a master's degree from Goucher. I have lived in 5 states, and grew up in a little town called Ocean Grove , New Jersey. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have 3 wonderful sons and a daughter- in- law ( finally, someone to shop with!) I also have a brand new baby grandson born last May! I had an amazing summer, too. I went to London, and Ireland, and to New Jersey to the beach! I spent tons of time with family and friends! I have 2 dogs, love pizza and chocolate chip mint ice cream (a little too much!), and I am crazy about my job! I look forward to an amazing and memorable year with my first pack of Lion Cubs!


We will have snack every day between 1-2 pm. Please send in a daily easy, dry, healthy yummy treat for your kiddo! I can't help them open it, I will be with students, so keep that in mind! See full schedule below!
