BIO

My name is Allison Hester. I am starting my second year at Newport Grammar School. My first year I taught 6th grade math. This year, I am transitioning to Kindergarten. I am one of five teachers in my family. I attended Newport Grammar and Cocke County High School before furthering my education at The University of Virginia at Wise. I attended college on basketball and golf scholarships. After graduation, my husband, Tyler, and I moved back to my hometown. We now have two baby boys, Quinton (19 months) and Griffin (4 months). When I am not at school, I like to spend time with my family, bake, and travel.
