Ms. Allison Burnell

 Hi, I’m Ms. Burnell!

This is my 11th year of teaching in St. Clair County. I am excited about starting my fourth year here at the VPA. I am certified in Early Childhood/Elementary Education (Grades PK-6) and English Language Arts (Grades 6-12). I have a Bachelor's from Louisiana Tech University in Family and Child Studies and a Master's in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from UAB. 

When I'm not at school, I stay busy with my three kids! I have a five-year-old son named Henry and one-year old identical twin girls, Collins and Ella James. I am crafty and love to make things, especially monogramming and embroidering. Some of my favorite hobbies are working out at my gym and kayaking. I love all things coffee and loaded teas to keep me going.
