In her own words . . .


“Students should have a strong voice in their own learning. I encourage this belief in my classroom. I believe when a child is taught the certainty that they are responsible for their own learning, they will begin asking higher-level thinking questions, start to participate in deeper discussions, and tap into others’ pooled wisdom, Becoming delightfully engaged in the world around them ultimately creates deeper, more meaningful understanding.”


In the words of others . . .


“Take a cursory glance into her classroom, and you might notice boys and girls diligently working at stations or in small groups. Take a closer look, and it’s a different world. These are students who have been motivated to work towards a goal. There is purpose in their action. There is purpose by design. Allison Wright drives this purpose.” 

Brian Dickson, Bunker Hill Elementary Teacher

“Allison Wright is a Kindergarten teacher who has an innate ability to teach as well as a love for touching her students’ lives in ways I think is rare. In simple terms, when it comes to leading a student to learn she ‘gets it.’”
Valerie Muniz, Bunker Hill Elementary Principal
