Staff Spotlight- Sarah Allinder and Allison Grattan

We have a few new additions to the English department this year, and one of them is Allison Grattan.  She teaches 9th, 10th, and 11th grade English.
She wanted to become a teacher because, “I grew up playing a lot of sports, and going to the camps I always helped out the younger kids. I love working with children and I’m very excited to be teaching.”
Grattan graduated from Western Michigan University in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in history and arts with a minor in English. We have the honor of being the first school she has taught at.  Her family lives in Pike County, Kentucky, so after graduation she looked for schools nearby and found Ripley High. 
She is an exciting and adventurous person who enjoys doing extracurricular activities.
She stated, “I love being involved in sports. In school I played basketball, volleyball, and softball. I’m also big into music, and I love to read.”
Sarah Allinder is another of the new teachers in the English department. Allinder has been a teacher for 15 years. She first taught in Mason County, and then went on to teach at a private school.
She grew up in her hometown of Point Pleasant, and then went on to college at Marshall University where she obtained a Master’s degree in English and a certification in social sciences.  Allinder enjoys being a teacher because she feels she can help to make a difference.
“I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. If I went back I would always go towards education again,” she stated.
            Allinder’s hobbies include  traveling and reading. She has three kids and three granddaughters.
