Favorite Book: The Wizard of Oz by Frank Baum
Alannah believes that all children are capable of learning and have the right to learn various and complex subject material that is part of a NYC public education without fear of failure, disappointment, or prejudice. It is incumbent upon every educator to create the nurturing environment for this to occur. Alannah worked as an MSQI consultant for the past five years, a literacy consultant for ten years before and, prior to that, for the NYCDOE as an English language arts and humanities teacher and as an assistant principal. It is largely through her work at MSQI that Alannah became passionate about every student’s right to an equal opportunity to a high quality education. Alannah holds both a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature and is licensed as an assistant principal and principal in NYC.
