Jasonides, Alison, Faculty, Social Studies

Ms. Jasonides was born and raised in Athens, Greece, and attended ACS throughout her K-12 career. Upon graduation, she moved to New York, where she received her undergraduate degree at Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in art history and anthropology. Her graduate studies in the history of art were conducted at New York University. As an adjunct instructor at Parsons The New School for Social Research, she taught the history of design, 20th century literature, and writing skills. In addition, she served as an in-house English language instructor to multinational corporate clients. Her professional teacher training was completed through the University of West Florida's TeacherReady program and she has received a professional educator certificate in Social Studies (Grades 6-12).

In her three years at ACS, Ms. Jasonides taught Social Studies to all grades in the Middle School allowing her a holistic perspective of the unique learning and developmental profile of the early adolescent student. In addition to teaching, she assisted in a long-term cataloguing project for the Sabbagh Library, and served as the teacher-sponsor for the first ever Diversity Club at ACS. Her goal is to guide her students with an engaging and humanistic approach by helping them hone their individual skills and stamina in reading, writing, research, and critical thinking, and highlighting the relevance of historical narratives and patterns to their own lives.
