Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Allison Schmitt and I am thrilled to begin my twelfth year of teaching with a new group of young leaders. Born and raised in San Diego, I spent the first five years of my career teaching grades 3-5 in the Chula Vista Elementary School District before moving to 5th grade at Solana Pacific in 2016. I am a proud alumni of both the University of San Diego (Undergrad/Credential) and San Diego State University (Masters in Teaching). I feel incredibly thankful to be able to work in a career that I love!
Most of my free time is spent exploring our beautiful city with my husband (Tony), son (Clayton-3.5 yr.) and rescue dog (Myko). I also enjoy writing music, cheering on the Padres, and camping! A fun fact about me is that I collect anything and everything giraffe! My students have done a fantastic job adding to my collection over the years.
