Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Allison McCullough
I was born in La Grange, Georgia to two loving parents. I was gifted with a twin sister that I share my life with. My first few years were spent in Georgia until my parents divorced when I was 8 years old. God had a different plan for our family.
We moved to the small town of La Pryor,Texas where our lives changed forever. Growing up in a rural area is unlike any other experience. Ranch life rewarded us with the ability to have horses and an endless amount memories with our grandparents, of which I am forever thankful. Our school was really small, but we had the best and most dedicated teachers. It was there that I met Marcel Valdez, the FFA, and Ag teacher who would inspire me to want to help children.
School was always important to me. I worked hard and was very involved in school activities. I was a drummer and marched in the Mighty Bulldog Band. National Honor Society, Pep squad and journalism were also clubs that I participated in, but the most influence came from the FFA organization. Future Farmers of America was an organization that built my self confidence, perseverance, and dedication to others. Mr. Valdez was our FFA Advisor and he showed what teachers with a passion for education can do for the lives of children.
I graduated from La Pryor High School in 1997 and decided to begin my college career locally at Southwest Texas Junior College. I received my Associates of Arts degree and chose to further my education at Sul Ross State University. I studied Business courses and earned my Bachelor's of Business Administration. It was a great accomplishment. Education is something no one can ever take away.
I married the best man that I've ever met in 2004. I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl in 2005 and at that time I decided that I wanted to become a teacher. My twin sister was a kindergarten teacher and I witnessed the ability she had to affect children's lives in a positive way. I received my teaching certification and began teaching at Batesville Elementary in a classroom across the hall from my sister. It was such a blessing to be mentored by her and become family with the teachers at that school.
I was welcomed to the Robb Elementary family the next year and I'm thankful that God placed me there. 12 years have passed and the teachers that I teach with everyday truly inspire to be the best teacher and best person that I can be.
I now have three daughters; Madison, Payton,and Zoe, and a family that I thank God for daily. I am right where I should be, and have the honor of making a difference in the lives of children.
