Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Allison Wilks. I graduated from Converse College with a Bachelor Degree in Elementary and Special Education. My desire for teaching came at an early age, when I helped someone dear to my family learn to read. It bothered me greatly, that not being able to read or write, left her vulnerable to others and kept her from doing many things in life. Everything she learned thrilled me and made her so happy. I knew then, I wanted to spend the rest of my life helping others get an education. I have taught special education in one form or another for 26 years. I love my job and the children. I learn much from each of my students as I watch them work through their own challenges. Every day and every year is a new experience. I look forward to 2017-2018.
