Garden Campus Site Director
Allison graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville with a degree in child and family studies and an emphasis on community outreach. She received Montessori training through Montessori Educators International (MEI). Allison has more than 10 years of teaching experience and taught at LRMS throughout her college career before finding a permanent position there in 2011. Her experience is primarily with preschool/kindergarteners but was also a toddler lead teacher for two years. Allison believes that Montessori is not only a philosophy of education but a way of life. Her mother was a Montessori teacher for more than 20 years and Allison was a Montessori child through 6th grade. She says, “The most wonderful part of being a teacher is that we learn just as much from them as they learn from us.”
By the end of this school year, Allison Jones will be a certified Administrator with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
