Alumni & Current Parent
Alumna - 5th grade class of 1995
Allison works at Kaiser Permanente and helps with Alumni Relations for Escuela del Sol. A board member since 2017, Allison serves on the board because “Escuela has always been part of my life and I love it.” She attended Escuela from Toddler through 5th grade, and feels like the teachers and the school have become her extended family. She is also proud of the vital service Escuela provides to the local community by expanding its outreach programs and welcoming home those who wish to share their creativity and ingenuity with the Escuela community. Allison’s vision for Escuela is aligned with the mission of the school – to inspire passion and lifelong learning in students who will become citizens of the world.
