Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Allyson Bond and this 2020-2021 school year marks my 26th year teaching 1st grade ~ 23 years right here at McGee's Crossroads Elementary School! I was born and raised in Winston-Salem, and since the 2nd grade, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I pursued that childhood dream and graduated from Meredith College with a Child Development degree and K-6 teaching certification.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, boating, being creative, painting furniture and canvases, and going to outdoor concerts - especially Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett and Zac Brown Band! =)
I look forward to spending an amazing year with my students and their families! FiRsTiEs aRe BeStiEs ... And remember to "read, read, READ!"

North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
