Lee University (Elementary Education)
My name is Allison and I graduated from Lee University with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a K-6 License. Throughout my life I have always been involved with children. I started by volunteering at a camp every summer as either help or counselor. I did volunteer work at the local children’s museum and have taught Wednesday night VBS classes as well as been a VBS leader and teacher. I have multiple teachers in my family and therefore have always seen a joy of being in the classroom.
In high school I was involved in clubs such as FBLA, Key Club and AP Art. I was also was the track team manager for a year. Other than my passion for children I also love design, art and animals. I am a very organized person and am self disciplined. In high school I received an award for being the most self-disciplined student in the senior class.
In the classroom I believe that students and teachers should respect each other, therefore making everyone look out for each other. During my methods and student teaching placement I taught every subject and realized I loved each of them. Math was easiest because there was always a definite answer however English I could have more fun with because I could use my creativity and see my students creativity.
Being at different placements I also tried teaching with different methods and quickly realized I liked the discovery method the best because students could get hands on and remember the information by finding it out on their own instead of being told facts. I love being in the classroom and being able to hear students' opinions and ideas because so often they are different than what we would have expected.
In college everything I studied for and about education was common core.
I have a K-6 License and have worked in the school system.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I studied Common Core in college. After college I have worked in different school systems in Tennessee that use Common Core. I also have many resources for teachers that help students understand Common cCore thinking.
