Allison Sable was born in Kalamazoo, MI, but also lived outside of St. Louis, MO and Cleveland, OH during her childhood. She received a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan and a Masters of Science in Education from Northwestern University. Allison first taught in Massachusetts for seven years, initially at a charter school in Fitchburg, MA and also at a public high school in Danvers, MA. After taking a few years off following the births of her two children, Andrew, now 8, and Lauren, now 6, she began substitute teaching again in the classroom three years ago. Allison will be taking over the 8th Grade ELA class this year and is thrilled to be joining the Charlotte Lab community.
