My name is Allison Crowley, and I am in my second year as an educator. I graduated from UNI in 2014 with a Bachelor’s in Elementary and Middle Level Education, and endorsements in Math and Science K-8. My sweet spot for teaching is grades 4-6. My favorite subject is Science. I’m a Des Moines native, born and raised. I’m nearly on my tenth year working for Clive Parks and Recreation, coaching, leading camps and swim lessons, and planning youth programs. I love spending my free time reading, traveling with friends and family, and tuning into my creative outlets of music and interior design.
