Ms. Leigh

Hi there!

My name is Allison Leigh and I am from Palmer, Alaska. I graduated from UAA with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I was lucky enough to complete my student teaching internship at Snowshoe from January-May 2019 teaching some pretty awesome 4th graders. I fell in love with Snowshoe because of the strong sense of community among the students, families, and staff. I then continued to be a part of the family as a 2nd grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. With all of the adversity in the spring, I witnessed just how adaptable and resilient our family truly is. These unchartered waters have led me to a new position; the designated Mat-Su Virtual Learning teacher for Kindergarten, first, and second grade. I look forward to taking on this task to create a positive educational experience for these students who cannot be in school during this time. Please feel free to reach out for any potential questions or concerns. 

 

My personal goals as an educator are to:

-create a safe space for every child to feel comfortable to be their true selves

-use assessment and data to drive individualized instruction

-use student interests and strengths to spark curiousity and promote engagement

-incorporate mindfulness through social-emotional learning

-cultivate relationships with families by learning each child's background, culture, and traditions
