My name is Alison Schumacher.  This is my fifth year as an administrator at Helen Huffman School.  I began my career at Huffman School in 2004 where I worked as a Literacy Assistant for three years. I then taught for seven years in numerous grade levels ranging from fourth grade to eighth grade at various schools within the district.  

I ended up in Cahokia after student teaching in a first-grade classroom at Huffman Elementary. After the first day, I knew that this was going to be my home.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from SIUE in 2004.  I went back to SIUE a few years later and earned my Master’s Degree in December of 2012.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and five-year-old daughter.  During my free time, I love to go boating and simply love hanging out with family and friends.
