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 ideas 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!
