Degrees and Certifications:
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.
