Education: B.A. English and History, Brown University
Allison was raised on Long Island, NY, and is a recent graduate of Brown University, where she double majored in English and History. Allison so excited to bring her love of reading and writing to her students through her work as a BETA this year. She has always been passionate about education, and during her four years of college she served as an after-school tutor for elementary school students and as one-one-one mentor to adults with developmental disabilities. She was also a peer advisor to first-year students through Brown’s Meiklejohn Peer Advising Program. She believes in the power of communities to support and inspire both students and teachers, and is greatly looking forward to working with her fellow BETAs to create a curious and engaged community in the classroom. She is also interested in music, theater, and art, and is looking forward to bringing these passions into the classroom and to after-school clubs.
