About Mrs. McAllister


I live in Windham with my husband and two kids. Molly is 15 and TJ is 11. I grew up in Westbrook then earned my teaching degree at UMF. I also have a Masters degree in literacy education from USM and I am currently working toward earning a Certificate of Advanced Study in literacy at USM. I am a book reviewer/blogger and I write professional articles for Choice Literacy.com. Here is my blog.


I am passionate about literacy and strive to make sure that each student learns to love to read.

The 2015-16 school year will be my 24th year of teaching and my 18th in Gorham. Previously, I taught for 4 years in S.A.D.40 in Waldoboro and two years in Lewiston. I spent a decade as a special educator before becoming a 4th grade classroom teacher. I also taught 5th grade at Village School for one year.

I love to spend time with my family, walk, scrapbook and READ. Books and reading are my passion so in my classroom I have tons of great books. I am also HUGE Harry Potter fan!
