Allison McDonald

Allison has been teaching children in various capacities since 1993. She started as a day camp leader at a local recreation center while in high school,  taught various preschool age and after school programs through university, and worked as a reading tutor while pursuing a second degree in elementary education. After graduating with honors she set out to teach, ended up as a director of a large childcare center and preschool, and eventually returned to the classroom. Her son’s birth brought her to combine her love of teaching and helping other parents, sparking the idea for her blog, No Time For Flash Cards.

Since starting NTFFC in early 2008, she has had the opportunity to contribute activities to many websites, become a staff blogger at FamilyEducation.com, and write curriculum for Itty-Bitty Bookworm, a literature-based preschool curriculum.
