Hi, MIS families! My name is Allison Whitmeyer and I will be teaching 5th grade Language Arts on House of Douglas this year. I was born and raised in Dallas, having attended Highland Park ISD schools and graduating from Highland Park High School in 2011. After high school, I decided to head north of the Red River to attend the University of Oklahoma - Boomer Sooner! I graduated in December of 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, and chose to further my education by pursuing a graduate program at OU. During graduate school, I worked in OU's Graduation Office where I focused on student-led, social retention efforts at the university. I graduated in May of 2018 with a Master of Education in Adult and Higher Education and an emphasis in Student Affairs.
After graduate school, I moved home to Dallas and began working at UP Elementary as an Instructional Assistant in 3rd and 4th grade, focusing on reading and math intervention, as well as served as a long-term substitute in 4th grade. From 2019-2021, I taught 3rd grade at Cottonwood Creek Elementary School in Coppell ISD, and am beyond thrilled to be returning to HPISD!
