Ms. Allison Griffin-Walser

Hello! My name is Allison Griffin-Walser. I am the mother of three amazing, bright, compassionate, dedicated and tough boys ages 3, 12, and 15. Education has always been a passion of mine, and I have been fortunate to work in public education since 1995. I have been honored to work with the wonderful staff and families of Youngsville Elementary this school year as a Kindergarten teacher, and I have loved all of the growth I have seen. As far as my own education goes, I am an honor graduate of North Carolina A&T State University where I double majored in Political Science and English. Continuing my pursuit of learning led me to earn my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. And because I do not like to leave things incomplete, I have completed my Doctorate in Educational Leadership. There's no telling what I will focus my learning on next! It is this love of learning that I hope to pass on to our Jr. Jags at Youngsville...because I am a believer in the Latin phrase "Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est", which translates to "Knowledge itself is power" (Sir Francis Bacon, Meditationes Sacrae, 1957).
