Mrs. Alison Eber
Alison Eber grew up in Michigan and is a three-time Michigan State graduate. Prior to becoming a teacher, she worked at Michigan State, coaching its college debate team to its first national championship at the National Debate Tournament. She left the team and relocated to Atlanta in 2006 so that her husband, Michael, could attend law school at Emory. They liked Decatur so much that they decided to make it their permanent home. Following Mike's completion of a clerkship on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Montgomery, AL in 2010, Alison started working in City Schools of Decatur.
During her time in CSD, Alison has been named Teacher of the Year (2014-2015), piloted and facilitated teacher and student learning with iPads and Chromebooks, and served on several district-level committees. During the 2017-2018 school year, Alison took a short break from the classroom to mentor other teachers who were new to CSD and to experience more of a leadership role within Fifth Avenue. She greatly missed being in the classroom, however. She requested to go back to working with students co-teaching with Mr. Livermore for the 2018-2019 school year, and she is excited to continue that collaborative partnership for 2019-2020.
In addition to working in CSD, Alison is finished with everything but her dissertation in a Ph.D. program at the University of Georgia. Her dissertation focuses on how elementary teachers use social media to learn from one another, and she hopes to finish that project in spring of 2020.
Finally, Alison is the mom of two amazing daughters. Sydney is a third grader at F.AVE, and Regan is in preschool at College Heights.
