Ms. Allison Burnell

 Hi, I’m Ms. Burnell!

This will be my 10th year of teaching in St. Clair County. I am excited to start my third year with the Virtual Prepartory Academy. I am certified in Early Childhood/Elementary Education (Grades PK-6) and English Language Arts (Grades 6-12). I am currently serving as the Interventionist for grades K-5. I am a busy mom of three kids. I have a five year-old son named Henry and I just had identical twin girls in July 2022, Collins and Ella James. I am crafty and love to make things. Some of my favorite hobbies are working out at my gym, snow skiing, and kayaking. I also love coffee, shopping, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family. 





  • I will be having parent/teacher conferences for all English classes in February. Conferences are not mandatory.
