We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Welcome! My name is Miss Allison Tomkowski and I have been a teacher at the Hollidaysburg Area Junior High School since the 2010-2011 school year. I believe that history is a very important part of any school's curriculum because a wealth of knowledge can be gained from studying the lives and events that occurred before us. These can then be taken and used to help us prepare for the future.
I am a 2010 graduate of Saint Francis University with a B.A. in History/Secondary Education. In 2010, I received the Pennsylvania Council of the Social Studies award for Student Teacher of the Year. In 2013, I graduated from Clarion University with a Master's Degree in Education (Curriculum and Instruction).
Welcome to HAJHS! I hope you are ready for a fantastic year of learning!
