My name is Allison Weaver and I teach in a small rural community in East Tennessee. I have been teaching for five years at a variety of grade levels and have really enjoyed the challenges and successes of working with children. As I have moved grade levels, I've enjoyed learning so many new things. I really believe that consistent innovation and studying makes teaching one of the most exciting jobs out there! I have especially developed a passion for reading and language instruction.
I choose to be open-minded as a professional and don't mind to go forth without a plan at times. If I try something and it doesn't work, I try again. I encourage kids to work together and try to stay organized so I can keep things rolling smoothly. I like to turn many things we study into games and activities so the learning can happen in a fun way.
I was nominated Teacher of the Year at my school and strive to be innovative and creative in everything I do.
I got my undergrad degree from Maryville College in Child Development for Teacher Licensure K-6. I have also obtained my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Lincoln Memorial University. I am currently going back to school for my Education Specialist Degree.
I am happily married to another teacher and we enjoy gabbing about school and having very blessed vacation time together.
