Allie collaborated with her co-teacher and built strong relationships with her students. Allie connects with every student and helps build confidence in science that they may not have had in the past. As a special education teacher, Allie has gone above and beyond to support her students and parents. She is an advocate for students with disabilities and goes above and beyond to make sure those students are respected, valued, and included in all things Falls Church High School. In addition to her love of teaching science, Allie has stayed active in the Falls Church community.
