Mrs. Allison Thornton
Hey there! My name is Allison Thornton and I am a Pre-K teacher at Watwood Elementary School. I began teaching in 2016 and taught 2nd grade here at WES for 6 years before transitioning to Pre-K. I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education in 2012. I am married to my wonderful husband, Jess, and we have a dog named Ruby, and 2 children, Grady Lex & Gracyn Joy. We live in Coosa County right outside of Sylacauga. I am so lucky to be a teacher and do what I love!
What is my why?
I want to inspire my students to have a love of learning. I want to make a difference in the lives of my students and make a lifelong impact. I want to show my students love and learn alongside them. I want to build relationships with my students and their families. I want to BE THE DIFFERENCE.
