Allyson joined the OPI Teacher Learning Hub team in June of 2020. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in K-8 Elementary Education from Montana State University in Bozeman, a Master’s degree in K-12 Curriculum & Instruction from Boise State University in Boise, ID, and a second Master’s degree in K-12 Educational Leadership/Administration from the College of Idaho. She feels fortunate to have found her passion in life early on and as a result, has “never gone to work a day in her life—only to school!” She loves her ‘work’ in education and has taught grades 3 through 6 as well as multi-grade classrooms in both public and private school settings, served as a 5-8 Middle School Principal, a K-12 Curriculum Director, a School Board Chair, and developed and served as the Director of a developmentally-based, parent-involved preschool. Her experiences in education have been many and varied and she is thrilled to continue her work in education at the state level with the Office of Public Instruction. She deeply values her Montana roots, and in her free time, she loves spending time with family and enjoying the great outdoors.
