Alison Oberman

I am starting my 6th year at Kenton Elementary School and will be teaching 4th grade. I taught 3rd grade for my first five years at Kenton. Prior to teaching, I had a career in the hospitality industry with Marriott International.  My hotel career started when I worked at the front desk and I worked my way up to a Senior Convention Sales Manager.  It was fun to work in a hotel but I’m definitely glad I decided to finally follow my passion and become a teacher.  I love teaching!  Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends and family.  One of my favorite activities is reading – I read for at least 20 minutes a night.  Other activities I enjoy are running, cooking and travel. I am looking forward to a fantastic year filled with learning and growing with my students and their families. My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by providing a safe environment that allows my students to take risks, make mistakes and take on learning to become the leaders of the future. My community needs me to do my job.
