Allison West

Hi! My name is Allison West. I was born and raised in Sherman and attended Belden Street Montessori school from 1985-1987. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Social Work from Texas Christian University and a Master in Arts in International Relations from St. Mary’s University. Before starting my career at Belden Street, I served as a school social worker in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and I am a licensed social worker in the state of Arkansas. My daughter is now attending Belden Street and I love that she gets to be immersed in the same Montessori atmosphere and teachings I grew up with.
