Mrs. Allison Baughman

Welcome Back Homestead Huskies!  I attended Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, with junior high endorsements in language arts and social sciences. In 2012, I received my master’s degree in reading from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois.  I taught 3rd grade at Homestead Elementary for eleven years and this is my third year teaching 2nd grade.  The past two years, I have been enjoying a job share with Gretchen Zuckerman!  We are Team 2-BZ!  This year will look different, but no matter where we are learning from, we hope to make a difference in our students' lives.  My entire family has had careers in education and we love helping others become lifelong learners.  My husband is now a principal in Plano.  We have been keeping busy with our kids, Harper, Jordan and our dog, Holly.  I've always wanted to become a teacher and looking forward to making a difference in my students' lives, just as my teachers did for me.  I hope to inspire my students and encourage them to persevere through challenges.  My students' efforts matter and I'm privileged to be a part of their journey to reach their dreams.  I'm looking forward to another rewarding year of learning with my students and our community.
