I earned my Bachelor's of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. 




Welcome to my page! My name is Allyson Harvey, and I will be teaching 3rd Grade English Language Arts this year. This is my second year at the amazing SIS! I cannot wait to get to know all of my parents and students to make this school year a great experience! So let me help you get to know me by telling you a little about myself. I am originally from a small town in Middle Tennessee called Columbia, which is known for our wonderful Mule Day (YES this is a real thing!!) My first 2 years of college I went to Columbia State Community College, in order to take my general education courses before going to a 4 year university. After I had completed my general education courses, I set out for Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This is where I attended Middle Tennessee State University, earning my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated in December 2015, and moved to Memphis, Tennessee immediately after I graduated to teach Kindergarten at a Shelby County School. From January to May I had my own classroom of 20 Kindergartners that taught me how to be patient, understanding, and love what I do. This is my second full year of teaching, and I absolutely LOVE being at Southaven Intermediate School! 

I am incredibly close with my family, and try to spend as much time with them as I can. To say that family means a lot to me is an understatement! I am the middle child of three, and the only girl. So I definitely was picked on growing up, but I wouldn't change it for the world! My older brother J.T. is an Insurance Salesman in the East Tennessee area and my younger brother John is an Officer in the United States Army where he is currently in Fort Rucker, Alabama to further his career as a Pilot. I find myself talking about my brothers often, so if your child says that I constantly talk about my brothers I apologize in advance!




I have been with my wonderful fiance' Phillip for almost 5 years. We are getting married 3 weeks after school starts, so my name will soon change to Mrs. DeWitt!  We have 2 dogs that are incredibly spoiled! Max is an 8 year old Yorkshire Terrier that loves to get belly rubs, treats, and get lots of attention! 

Tater is a 5 year old Manchester Terrier who is full of personality. He thinks he is a scary guard dog, when in reality, he is only about 20 pounds. He was a rescue from a shelter in my hometown and has definitely come a long way since we got him!



My dogs are my absolute world, and I find myself talking about them often as well. So I also apologize in advance for how much you will hear about them from your child!
