Early Childhood Education

Mrs. Allyson Word

 Teaching has always been my passion, so I am super excited to have a job in education.  I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education.  West Madison was my home for the last 27 years and it was the "Best Kept Secret" in Madison City. Since West Madison closed, my new home is now Midtown Elementary and I am starting my 30th year of teaching and will be retiring at the end of this year!! My #1 goal as a teacher is to love your children! I always aim to make my classes comfortable and give my students the opportunity to express themselves and have more talk time, so that they can build confidence, and become lifelong learners!

I grew up in Huntsville and went to Chapman Elementary and  Lee High School.  My husband Clark was from Guntersville and moved to Huntsville when we married in 1990. We have two children, Jacob and Morgan, and the sweetest dog Buck.  Our children attended West Madison and Bob Jones and both graduated from Auburn University.  Jacob and my daughter-in-law Kaitlyn live in Birmingham with my new granddaughter Saylor, and our two grand dogs, Teller and Barkley. My daughter Morgan lives in Huntsville and she is getting married to Ethan Gannuch in December. 

I feel parent participation is very important so please come visit anytime. 

A few things about myself... I am a HUGE Auburn fan!! I love to bake, travel, spend time at the beach, and read whenever I have the opportunity. 

Always feel free to reach out to me with your questions or concerns through my email at

Let's make the most out of this new year!!
