Allison Ibanez has a passion for exploring the intersection of language and literacy. As a certified Speech-Language Pathologist working in schools, she realized that many students with language disorders also had reading difficulties. This led her to further her education. Allison was awarded the Anne E. Fowler Fellowship to pursue a 6th year degree in Reading and Language Development at Fairfield University. In addition to her SYC, she holds a B.S. in Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology from Andrews University and graduated with an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from The George Washington University. Allison looks forward to partnering with teachers to fill their literacy toolboxes with strategies.
