Allison wishes all students in the province are able to reach their full potential and have the supports to do so. She strongly believes that when supports are in place in the classroom - all students will benefit, as well as the teacher.
Allison lives in Lethbridge with her husband Duane and three children. She has been involved in education since her stepdaughter (now 20) was in school.
An active volunteer since her youth, Allison currently volunteers with many autism groups and school/community committees. She works as a Regional Coordinator for AMA School Safety Patrol covering all of southern Alberta. She and her husband also run a small business part time.
Attending ASCA conferences since 1997, Allison was elected as an ASCA Director in 2012, and delighted to be voted in as President at the AGM in 2016.
Dawn Miller is in her fourth year on the ASCA Board and is serving her second term as Vice-President.
Married with three children in the public education system, French immersion, she is very active in her school district.
Growing up, she served her community on the Strathcona County Youth Council and advocated for the youth voice. Dawn has coached softball and cheerleading, been involved with school councils since 2007 and served on numerous education committees.
A focus in her service is relationship building and community engagement. Dawn believes “it takes a village”, a strong education community working together to ensure the best in a child’s education journey. As part of the village, she strives to educate and engage others to excel in their endeavours.
