Ms. Allison Quam
My name is Allison Quam and I am the Reading Strategies teacher for 6th, 7th and 8th grades at Murray Middle School. Reading Strategies is designed for students in grades 6-8 with emerging literacy skills, who continue to need instruction on basic reading skills.
I have been teaching in St Paul for many years and have taught grades K-8th. Reading is my specialty and I am pationate about teaching kids some of the tricks that I have learned along the way, to make reading more enjoyable.
I grew up in a very small town in South Dakota. I have a Bacholer of Science degree from the University of South Dakota, and a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Minnesota. In 2013 I earned a Reading Licensure, which allows me to teach reading to students in K-12.
I love teaching at Murray Middle School, as the students are becoming more adult-like and they are developing a sense of humor. Every day is an exciting day, when you are working with 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
