Alison received her B.A. in Elementary Education from North Central College, and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Aurora University.

She was an excellent teacher, with a true passion for genuinely connecting with her many students. We will always remember her infectious smile, hilarious wit, and exceptionally considerate heart.
