My name is Kristina Allison and I currently teach language arts and newspaper at the middle school level. I have been teaching for over 11 years and have taught language arts, social studies, RSP, German and even home economics for a short time. (I still feel I should apologize to those kids). I enjoy torturing students with my humor and reward all who laugh at my jokes. I am passionate about words–reading and writing them. I have two children who supply me with endless laughter and frustration. I enjoy running, a lot and will not argue if one suggests that running is stupid. I’m also a huge fan of the fine art of craft beer and frequent breweries every chance I get. Simply lie and compliment me on either my wit or my impeccable taste, and we’ll get along just fine.
