About Me!
Allison Irving
 

  My name is Allison
Irving and I am a post-baccalaureate student at Moravian College. I am a native to the area. I was born and raised in Easton, Pennsylvania. I am a 2008 graduate of  Easton Area High School.  After high school, I attended Lafayette College where I graduated in three years with a Bachelor's in Anthropology and Sociology.  At Moravian, I will be done with my elementary (K-6) certification in December of 2012.





   During my time at Lafayette, I had wonderful experiences working with children. I went back to my high school Alma Mater to tutor 9th grade students who were at risk of failing.  It was during that time that I was taking my first education class ever: Foundations of Education.  As a requirement for the course, I had to visit mTri Deltaany different schools.  I visited a Moravian Academy 7th grade class, a Palmer Elementary kindergarten class, and many high school classes at Easton Area High School.  It was around this time that my passion for teaching started to come out.  As a member of Delta Delta Delta at Lafayette, I was given the wonderful opportunity to go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  There I got to see where the money my sorority had raised went to, but most importantly, I got to meet some of the patients at St. Jude.  I realized how precious life is and how wonderful children are.  Going on the trip to St. Jude cemented my desire to become a teacher.



Jamaica
   I decided before I graduated Lafayette, that I wanted to go to Moravian College for their excellent teaching program.  I took summer and interim classes in order to finish Lafayette a year early and start my teaching experiences at Moravian as soon as possible.  While at Moravian, I have had wonderful experiences working with children.  This past Spring Break I had the opportunity to travel to Jamaica and help build an extension onto a school.  I also got to deliver school supplies to various schools in the Whitehouse area of Jamaica.




cupcakes   In my spare time, I love to bake.  I have tons of recipe books and decorating tools.  I also enjoy reading. Recently, I've been trying to read all of the books on the Newbery Award list. So far, Bud not Buddy has been my favorite.  Another of my favorite thing to do is 5K or more walks (I'm working up to the runs).  I've done the Light the Night for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for three years, the St. Jude Give Thanks Walk this year, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund walk this year, and Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society last year. Finally, I enjoy shopping and spending times with friends and family.
