Kindergarten teacher Jolyn Metro says Allison “understands the nuanced aspects of teaching so well that I was able to learn a great deal from watching her teach my kindergarten class, even though she has never taught extensively in the younger grades.”
In her classroom, students learn the Preamble to the Constitution, memorize the poem of Paul Revere’s ride and demonstrate knowledge of each state and each president. Such knowledge may be uncommon today, but not in her class, where if her fifth-graders succeed in those tasks, they earn a “Young American Award.”
