Alison Bellamy

Alison Bellamy has always had a true passion and love for the world of education and for learning.  Her dedication for meeting the unique learning needs of all of her students has always been her priority.  In her 20 year teaching career, she has established lifelong relationships with parents, students and families.  They continue to return to her classroom year after year to visit, volunteer, and look for educational guidance. 

Alison graduated from East Carolina University in 1999 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Concentration in Child Development and Family Relations.  She attained her M.Ed. in Language and Literacy, along with her K-12 Reading Specialist Licensure from UNCW in 2005.  While studying in the Master's Program, she traveled to Osaka, Japan to study Japanese schools and culture.  She has been a Nationally Board Certified Teacher since 2006 and recently recertified in 2016.  She has taught grades K-2 and is currently a Kindergarten teacher at Murrayville Elementary in New Hanover County.

Among teaching, her professional interests include advocating for students and teachers, as well as, mentoring interns and beginning teachers.   Having three daughters that will have a public school system education, she knows firsthand the importance of recruiting and retaining strong, caring teachers.  She is excited to have been chosen for the 2018-2021 Master Teacher Cohort and looks forward to the opportunity to grow both professionally and as a learner.  Upon completion of the Master Teacher Program, she hopes to continue her education in pursuing her Ed.D. in Educational Leadership (Curriculum and Instruction) or Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies.
