Mrs. Elder

Meet Mrs. Elder

Hi!  My name is Mrs. Allison Elder.  I am the elementary school art teacher at a fabulous school in Johns Creek, Georgia, State Bridge Crossing Elementary.  I’ve had the privilege of working in other schools around this area, learning from excellent staff and being inspirited by a variety of students.  I've always had a fondness for reading and art so with a lot of patience and great mentors, I completed my Master's of Art Education in 2011, focusing my thesis on how to incorporate children's literature into the art curriculum.  I love to use books as a tool in my class and I hope you will be inspired to also. 

     I have a very supportive husband, Dave, and a super cute Goldendoodle named Willy.  I grew up just a few minutes away but since then, my parents now live on a lake in Alabama.  It happens to be my favorite place to relax.  My mother is a sixth grade teacher and inspired my love of learning and reading.  My in-laws live really close by to this school!  A perfect weekend would include hanging out with them.  My mother-in-law is also a teacher.  She teaches second grade at Northwood Elementary.
