Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Allison Baughman
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 first year teaching 2nd grade. I am very excited for this opportunity and know just what my students will need to prepare them for third grade. 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.
