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. This small operation specialized in cloth diapering and positive parenting. 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. These days, when she's not planning Homeschool Rocks! events, and homeschooling her girls, she likes to spend the remaining 1 percent of her time working out, doing yoga, reading, playing games, spending time with friends, or staring at the wall in blissful silence. Allison's current claim to fame: Her kids are showing signs of being nice, which is hopeful.

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