Ms. Allison Shratter

I am from Hoover, AL where I attended Hoover High School, and I grew up in a family that loves languages and loves to travel. Language opens the doors for communication, cultural understanding, and acknowledgement of multiple views, so I am excited about opening these doors for students. I cannot wait to have a great year at JCHS! Go Jets!

Sī valētis, valeō. (If you are well, I am well)
