Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Alison Kerigan
Hi! My name is Alison Kerigan. I'll be starting my 2nd year as the Physical Education teacher at Powhatan Elementary.
Previously I'd been teaching Kindergarten for 15 years (in Florida and at West Clayton Elementary), but welcomed a teaching change, using my fitness degree & athletic/coaching background. I attended Florida State University where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Fitness & Nutrition. I played basketball there for four years on scholarship (GO NOLES!). While I don't play anymore, I am still an avid sports fan. I cheer for FSU, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears. I grew up in Joliet, Illinois.
I have a husband, Tim, and two kids, Cullen and Riley. And my hound dog, Roxy.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
