    From Miss Allison:

    Hello MNE community! I am excited for this amazing opportunity to work with Mrs. Myers, students, and families at Mount Nittany Elementary School. I graduated from Penn State
    Altoona with a degree in Psychology in 2017. After graduation, I was employed as a counselor
    with Pyramid Healthcare for a year and a half before becoming a Special Education
    Paraprofessional with SCASD. For the past year, I have been employed with Mount Nittany
    Elementary School working in Autistic Support as a Paraprofessional. In August of 2019, I
    returned to Penn State University to obtain a Master’s of Education degree with an emphasis in
    Elementary School Counseling.

    I grew up in Centre County and graduated from Bald Eagle Area School District. While at Penn
    State Altoona, I was a four-year softball collegiate student athlete. I am the youngest of three
    with an older brother and sister. My hobbies include being outdoors, going for walks/hikes,
    traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I look forward to spending time
    developing relationships with all students and families at MNE!
