Primary 6 Assistant Guide
Hey there! My name is Allison Fischer and I am over the moon excited to begin my Montessori journey at Athena! This will be my first year here and I can’t wait!!
I grew up in the Dallas area and attended school at Texas Tech where I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education. From there, I joined a campus ministry and served college students for 5 years. That brought me to Austin. I left the ministry which led me on quite a job journey from being in a comedy troupe, working in a beauty salon, an architectural firm, the Container Store and finally landed in my happy place….preschool!
I have over 11 years of Preschool experience at a tiny school in the Westlake area. There I found my people group, I love being with the littles and found that is my wheelhouse and where my heart and passion lies.
I am married to my husband Elwood and we have two kiddos, Walker (14) and Willow (11). We have 6 animals (1 dog, 2 cats, and 3 baby chicks) and love to nurture and love on them. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, being silly and playing improv games with my kids and spending time with friends and family.
I look forward to this year with your precious children, learning from them and growing together.
