About Ms. Allison

"If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much."
--Jacqueline Kennedy

After a long and storied life as a dancer, a sorority girl, a juvenile detention facility guard, a private investigator, and the wearer of many other colorful hats, Allison settled down in Florida, had two beautiful little girls, and opened a home daycare with her mom and grandma. After several successful years, as Elisa and Diana grew older, Allison decided to venture into homeschooling and founded Homeschool Rocks! with her trusty sidekick, Amanda. Since 2016, Allison has been in charge of scheduling and organizing field trips, as well as planning and teaching a variety of classes and events. She has proven herself amongst the youngsters to be cheerful, bossy, energetic, and stubborn – basically very easily relating to children.

Allison decided to homeschool her daughters to give them the opportunity to learn on their own level, benefit from specialized and private instruction, and overall gain an interactive education. Gameschooling, travel, and volunteer service are a key component in their homeschooling journey. Allison brings these priorities to Camp HSR! so that her own children and others will benefit from engaging directly with students of all ages, backgrounds, and needs.

Allison possesses a BA and MS in Criminal Justice from Michigan State University. Be advised, this only helps keep adults in line, not children.

My mom is a good teacher because...

"...she does everything how I want it. She's awesome and she's cool and she makes cool things." - Elisa, age 9

"...she knows everything. There are no things she doesn't know. She knows everything." - Diana, age 7
