Allison Knight

Allison has served in urban education in the Greater Atlanta area for the last 8 years. Allison has spent her 8 years in education both inside and outside of the classroom developing herself and others to become change-agents of education with the belief that education is the true equalizing factor for marginalized communities.

Allison earned a B.A. in Psychology from Arizona State University in 2015 and a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from RELAY Graduate School of Education in 2021. She’s a licensed P-5 educator in the state of Georgia and her teaching experience has taught her the power of transformational student and peer relationships as the driving factor of cultural development and academic success.

Outside of work you can find Allison trying a new restaurant, spending time outside, working out in the gym or traveling with her family.
