Mrs. Allison Durst
Welcome to Kindergarten at Fredericksburg Primary School!
It is an absolute joy to be working with both you and your child, and I can't wait to see all of the amazing things your child will accomplish this year! I love to watch these amazing little people grow and change throughout their Kindergarten experience and beyond!
My husband, Lyle, was born and raised in Fredericksburg and graduated from FHS. We have two little future Battlin' Billies ages 5 and 2. These two little boys are our world, and we look forward to them attending FPS in the near future! I grew up in a small West Texas town, and graduated from Angelo State University with my degree in Child Development and Learning. I am a second generation teacher, and my mother is truly the inspiration that led me to this profession. I grew up seeing the impact that she had on the lives of so many, and I had the desire to follow in her footsteps from an early age.
This will be my 6th year to teach in the public school system, and my 4th year to teach Kindergarten at FPS. Since graduating college, I have also taught First Grade in the public school system and Pre-K at a local church-affiliated preschool. I truly enjoy working with children at this stage in their academic career. It brings me pure joy to see their faces light up and watch their excitement when they learn something new!
I am an English Language Arts and Reading teacher, and I have the privilege of being partner-teachers with Robin Grumbles (FPS Math, Science, and Social Studies teacher) for the 4th year in a row. I truly love what I do and put my heart and soul into shaping the lives of future generations. I consider it a blessing and an honor to have such an incredible job.
Again, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's education! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, and I look forward to partnering with you this year!
