All About Ms. Yarrow

Hello! My name is Allison Yarrow. I have been teaching for 22 years. I am originally from Hattiesburg, MS but have lived in Ocean Springs for the past 13 years. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi. I taught grades 1st-3rd at Oak Grove Lower Elementary for the first 7 years of my teaching career. After I moved to Ocean Springs, I taught 3rd grade for 2 years at Magnolia Park. During this time, I attended William Carey College and obtained my master's degree in gifted education. From there I went on to teach 5th grade Connections at Taconi Elementary for 4 years. I went from Taconi to the Upper and have been teaching 4th grade Connections ever since. :)  I love my job! I love the fact that even though I teach the same group of kids each day of the week, not ONE day is ever the same!  I have 3 boys (all 7 years apart): Britt, Tanner and Jensen. Britt is married, lives in Baton Rouge and has two beautiful children (Charlie Britt and Blakely). Tanner graduated from OSHS and is starting his second year of college this year at MGCCC and Jensen is a 7th grader at OSMS and plays football. I love to play tennis. Each season I play on several tennis teams around the coast. I love to read, be outdoors and shopping!  I just recently went skydiving!
