Mrs. Allison Boggess
My name is Mrs. Boggess (formerly Ms. Broadwater) and I am thrilled to be in my 4th year at LMMS! I LOVE teaching 7th grade science; there is truly nowhere else I'd rather be.
I previously taught in Boston, MA, and Pittsburgh, PA. I love teaching science because it's hands-on and always growing. I encourage students to engage in science through building, testing, debating, creating, and investgating. A native of West Virginia (go Mountaineers!), I studied neuroscience at Wellesley College and earned my Masters in Education from Vanderbilt University. I thrive in a classroom that is active and engaged; my students should come in ready to challenge themselves and discover new knowledge!
Besides traveling, I also love spending time outdoors. In 2015, my husband and I completed a thru-hike of the entire Appalachian Trail, hiking 2,200 miles from Georgia all the way to Maine over the course of seven months. I am no stranger to persistance- or getting dirty!
I can't wait for all the adventures the year will bring. I also can't wait to learn all about Graniteville and the Aiken area from the LMMS community. Please stop in and introduce yourself and teach me all about yourselves and our area!
