Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Allison Lackey and I teach Pre-AP and Standard English 9 at Thompson High School for the 2018- 2019 school year. I am excited to continue this journey with Alabaster City Schools, and I see many positive days ahead. This is my fifteenth year to work as an educator.
Just to let you know a little bit about my educational background, I earned my B.A. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham majoring in English and minoring in Biology. Additionally, I earned a Masters Degree in Secondary Education from UAB with a concentration in English Language Arts.
My goal each year is to help students increase their comprehension and communication skills for their ever expanding world. The skills they learn in class will assist them in both their current and long-term goals. We will be reading, discussing, writing, and considering different viewpoints from a wide variety of texts. I enjoy the continuing dialogue, and I hope the students will as well. We are all life-time learners, so please be prepared with a good attitude and a willingness to learn, and there will always be experiences to enrich the day.
