Biography

Allison has been teaching at Port Chester Middle School in Westchester, NY since 2006.

 I have the pleasure of teaching Family and Consumer Science. The curriculum focus in my classroom is in the areas of interpersonal relationships, leadership, community connections, resource management, entrepreneurship, global citizenship, sustainability, food production, nutrition, meal preparation, and cultural foods. I also coordinate our school garden. The Port Chester Middle School Giving Garden harvests over 1000 lbs of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables each year that is distributed to local families in need.

I received a BA in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz, and my Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology from NYIT. I am a certified Health Chef and graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. I was a member of Americorps National Civilian Community Corps where I completed 1800 hours of community service during a 10 month program. I live in Westchester County, New York with my husband, who is a Kindergarten teacher in a bilingual school. We have two great children who keep me busy..
